Purpose of the unit standard

The skills, values and knowledge reflected in this unit standard are required by people in the field of building and civil construction. Learners should be able to perform duties in installing access equipment for construction work effectively and safely

Learning assumed to be in place and recognition of prior learning

It is assumed that learners are already competent in the following:

ü  Comunication at NQF Level 2.

ü  Mathematical Literacy at NQF Level 2. 

Unit Standard Range

Stated with Specific Outcomes/Assessment Criteria to which they apply. The typical scope of the unit standard includes:

ü  Scaffolds must all be erected in accordance with relevant safety regulations and SANS Codes of Practice (i.e. 10085 1988 for scaffolding).

ü  Maximum safety height of scaffolding is 2 meters. If this safety height is exceeded additional regulatory requirements will have to be met.

ü  Erecting and dismantling scaffolding include system scaffolds with ladder access, trestle scaffolds, and extension ladders, and the use of step ladders

Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria: 

Specific outcome 1: Erect and dismantle a system scaffold with ladder access

Assessment criteria 

ü  The area where the scaffolding is erected is level and free of obstruction

ü  Sole plates are positioned on compacted ground in order to eliminate the possibility of unsafe movement

ü  Adjustable jacks are in position to receive scaffolding components to meet safety requirements

ü  Horizontal components are levelled and vertical components are plumbed in accordance with site conditions

ü  Scaffolding components are secured through appropriate bracing in accordance with site conditions

ü  Scaffold, toe boards and safety/hand rails are properly positioned on working platforms in accordance with legal and safety requirements

Ø  There is maximum spacing of supports for boards.

Ø  All couplings are tight

ü  All components are stacked when dismantled in the correct order

ü  The system scaffold is inspected, used and defects reported to meet requirements reflected in checklist, statutory regulations and organisational procedures respectively

Specific outcome 2: Erect and dismantle a trestle scaffold.

Assessment criteria

ü  Scaffold boards are free of damage and obstruction

ü  The area where the scaffolding is erected is level and free of obstruction

ü  Trestles are levelled and stablised in accordance with safety and legal requirements

ü  The height, width and length is according to specification and the gap between trestles and the working plane is not more than 75mm

ü  The locating pins are inserted and collapsible stays are locked in position

ü  Scaffold boards and trestles are stacked when dismantled in accordance with safety and legal requirements

ü  The trestle scaffold is inspected, used and defects reported to meet requirements reflected in checklist, statutory regulations and organisational procedures respectively

Specific outcome 3: Erect and dismantle an extension ladder.

Assessment criteria

ü  The correct type of ladder is selected in accordance with height and specific task requirements

ü  The area where the extension ladder is erected is level and free of obstruction

ü  The ladder is erected to extend at least 90mm above the working area in accordance with legal requirements

ü  The base distance is approximately 1/4 of the height to the platform

ü  The extension ladder is inspected, used and defects reported to meet requirements reflected in checklist, statutory regulations and organisational procedures respectively. 

Specific outcome 4: Erect and dismantle a step ladder.

Assessment criteria

ü  The learner faces the ladder when ascending or descending

ü  One hand is used to hold onto the stile

ü  The ladder is climbed one rung at a time

ü  Braces or ropes are fully extended

ü  The step ladder is inspected, used and defects reported to meet requirements reflected in checklist, statutory regulations and organisational procedures respectively
