TLI Fuel Storage Dangerous Goods Contractor
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 Transport and Logistics IRC will have oversight of this project, which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards (AIS) in consultation with industry stakeholders. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will be formed for this project.
- One new Skill Set (The proposed Skill Set will comprise current and new Units of Competency to address the specific skills gaps identified by industry)
- Development of up to four new Units of Competency
The Case for Endorsement is expected to be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee by 30 October 2020.
