Technology students and teachers are likely to be using a range of equipment and machines that, by their nature, present a higher risk than other areas of the curriculum.
This accredited course 22454VIC in Safe Use of Machinery for Technology Teaching is made up of 3 units of competency:
- VU22276 Apply safe work practices involving machines used in technology teaching (mandatory for all students)
- VU22278 Perform safe work operations involving wood working machines used in technology teaching
- VU22277 Perform safe work operations involving metal working machines used in technology teaching
The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2007 (Part 3.5 - Plant) require employers to identify and control risks associated with machinery and plant in the workplace. The School Principal is responsible for ensuring that the relevant safety precautions for operating machinery in the school are implemented. Teachers must have also had the obligatory training and have attained the required levels of competency in machinery and plant.
This course is confined to instructions in the safe use of operating machinery in a technology teaching environment in schools.
Both the woodwork and metalwork units can be completed together or separately as a single unit, coupled with the mandatory safe work practice component. Contact us for more details.
This course is held at McLelland College in Frankston or can be offered at your workplace in case of a group booking.
