Industry have identified the need to establish occupational standards to achieve a national and standardised approach to managing contractors working on retail fuel sites, to address environmental and public safety obligations. With an ageing asset base this sector is seeing increased maintenance and preventative maintenance having to be carried out effectively.
The Transport and Logistics Industry Reference Committee (IRC) proposed the development of a new Skill Set and four new Units of Competency focused on skill and knowledge requirements to operate safely around fuel retail sites, and will incorporate current legislation, codes of practice and other operational documentation that is currently in industry use.
The expected submission of the Case for Endorsement will be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) by 30 October 2020.
