This unit standard is for persons in the Electrical Engineering; Generation; Distribution; Transmission, Construction and Renewable Energy Sectors.
A person credited with this unit standard will be able to:
Select, safely use and care for range of fixed and portable power tools
This unit standard will contribute to the full development of the learner within the electrical engineering and construction environment by providing recognition, further mobility and transportability within the field of Physical Planning and Construction. The skills, knowledge and understanding demonstrated within this unit standard are essential for social and economic transformation and upliftment within the electrical engineering and construction environment.
Learners who are assessed as competent against this unit standard will be able to identify the hazard of confined spaces and the precautions required for the safety of the workers and public.
This unit standard underpins the Elective Learning.
It contributes to the development of a professional community of Construction workers. The contribution to The National Skills Development Strategy is the key development interface between learners and new competencies to be achieved.
Its contribution to socio-economic transformation is that learners would be able to undergo RPL-assessment and thereby received recognition for previous learning and experience. The employability and career prospects of learners can therefore be enhanced by the qualification.
Stacking and Storage
Learners who are involved in receiving, handling and storage of raw material within a continuous steel tube and pipe manufacturing process require the skills, values and knowledge reflected in this unit standard.
Qualifying learners can receive and store raw materials required in the process as well as reflect on the receiving and storage process within a larger ferrous tube making production process. They will understand the importance of effective raw material receiving and storage and how this is achieved. This will include receiving, transporting and storage of raw materials, identifying non-conformances and taking corrective action.
The learning outcomes in this unit standard also contribute to the exit level outcomes required for the National Certificate in Steel Tube and Pipe Manufacturing (Seamless Hot-Finished, Welded or Cold-Formed) (NQF level 2) and related qualifications.
