Project Description

Locate Underground Services Course

RIICCM202E Identify, Locate And Protect Underground Services

This unit of competency is based on RIICCM202E Identify, locate and protect underground services when working in the civil construction industry.
Damage to our underground infrastructure can be expensive and potentially very dangerous, being able to identify these assets is critical for any organisation involved in excavating in a civil construction environment.

Underground services are those services such as gas, electricity, internet and telephone that are required for modern life. It is a requirement that all attempts are made to locate these services before using worksite equipment that may cut or damage these services. Most states and territories have a Dial Before You Dig style provision that can be used to provide information and plans to assist in identifying where underground service and cables are located.

There are no prerequisites for this course.

Basic written and spoken English is required to understand WorkSafe Victoria guidelines, Australian Standards and workplace policies and procedures and undertake the assessment tasks associated with this unit.

Participants will complete a language, literacy and numeracy assessment to assess their capacity to meet unit requirements.

Participants will need to have the physical capacity to undertake the practical components of the unit.
