This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to identify perimeter site boundaries and survey indicators to establish, measure and set up profiled set-outs for buildings and structural components of building work, meeting all relevant requirements of the National Construction Code (NCC), Australian Standards, work health and safety (WHS), and Commonwealth and state or territory legislation.
The unit includes setting out pads, posts, slabs, strips, and stumps and installing string lines to profile the footings of a building and associated structures on a site.
Completion of the general construction induction training program specified by the model Code of Practice for Construction Work is required for any person who is to carry out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this

Vocational and further education (TAFE)
Unit code:


CPCCWHS2001 - Apply WHS requirements, policies and procedures in the construction industry


Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce and extend knowledge and skill competence within set and controlled parameters in accordance with each unit's learning outcomes and performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines. Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills: *a candidate must meet the performance criteria of this unit by setting out one L- and one T-shape building on a site with fall. *Setting out must be to 3 mm tolerance over minimum diagonal length of 10 metres, and include pads, slabs, strips and piers. Students will also be expected to demonstrate the following knowledge: *compliance requirements of Australian Standards relevant to carrying out setting out *workplace quality policies and standards for carrying-out setting-out *safety requirements for carrying out setting out *application and requirements for line, level and plumb in construction projects *mathematical techniques associated with setting out *processes for reading and interpreting construction plans, drawings and sketches when carrying out setting out of pads, slabs, strips and piers *processes and techniques for accurate setting-out on flat, sloping and steep sites *processes for setting-out *site isolation responsibilities when carrying out setting out *types, characteristics, technical capabilities and limitations of devices used to carry out setting out activities.
