Industry have identified the need to establish occupational standards to achieve a national and standardised approach to managing contractors working on retail fuel sites, ensuring they meet 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 this project to develop 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.View 2019 IRC Skills Forecast
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.
Regular updates will be posted on this page throughout the life of the project.
If you have any questions about this project or are a subject matter expert and would like to be considered for the TAC for this project, please contact the Industry Manager.
