This unit covers the design and development of electronics/computer systems projects. It encompasses working safely, designing, constructing, and recording, evaluating and reporting of an electronics/computer systems design project.

Unit details

Study level:
Vocational and further education (TAFE)
Unit code:


UEENEEE101A - Apply Occupational Health and Safety regulations, codes and practices in the workplace


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 and knowledge: - electronic measuring instruments; - connection of test/measuring devices into a circuit; - taking readings; - storage, maintenance and care of test/measuring devices; - engineering design processes; - the functional and non-functional requirements of a customer; - design objectives (specifications) to satisfy a given set of customer attributes; - creation of the design plan through solution synthesis by selecting or creating the solution; - analysis; - optimisation of the proposed solution; - validations of the resulting design against the customer's; - implementation of the selected design; - occupational health and safety fundamentals; - the work environment; - manual handling; - working at heights; - confined spaces; - physical and psychological hazards; - working safely with electricity; - life support - CPR in the workplace; - risk management and assessment of risk; - hazards associated with low-voltage, extra-low voltage and high-currents; - risks and control measures associated with high-voltage; - risks and control measures associated with low voltage; - risks and control measures associated with the high levels of radiation; - optical fibre safety, and; - safety, selection, use, maintenance and care of test equipment.
