Implement Traffic Management Plan
In acknowledgement of the dangerous nature of controlling traffic VicRoads requires all field personnel responsible for setting out, implementing and/or monitoring a Traffic Guidance Scheme, as required by a traffic management plan, to have completed the RIIWHS302D unit.
Evidence must be collected that demonstrates competency in this unit. This evidence must be relevant to the roles within the sector’s work operations and satisfy all requirements of the unit performance criteria. This includes evidence that the participant can:
- Locate and apply relevant documentation, policies and procedures
- Work effectively with others to undertake and complete the traffic management plans that meet all required outcomes including complying with written and verbal reporting requirements and procedures and communicating clearly and concisely with others
- Demonstrate completion of implementing traffic management plans that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one occasion including complying with regulations on three separate live traffic projects; completing one project controlling site construction vehicles; and identify and selecting a traffic guidance scheme
The participant must demonstrate their knowledge of implementing a traffic management plan through:
- Accessing, interpreting and applying legislative, organisation and site requirements and procedures for JSAs/JSEA/Safe work method statement; potential hazards and risks; and controlling traffic
- Identifying equipment types, characteristics, technical capabilities and limitations
- Identifying site isolation and traffic control responsibilities and authorities
- Identifying quality requirements
- Applying relevant civil construction terminology
The unit assessor must satisfy the requirements of the NVR/AQTF or their successors; and industry regulations for certification and licensing. This unit is best assessed in the context of the sector’s work environment. Where personal safety or environmental damage present as limiting factors, the assessment can occur within a simulated environment provided it is realistic and sufficiently rigorous to cover all necessary aspects of workplace performance.
