PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard reflects the skills, values and knowledge required by people in the sub-field of Forestry and/or wood technology who must be able to control the basic maintenance and lubrication programme in a Lumber Mill.

People credited with this Unit Standard are able to:
  • Demonstrate understanding of purpose and how to control basic maintenance and lubrication programme.
  • Demonstrate understanding of functions, purpose and methods of application of the basic maintenance.
  • Control storage facilities and keep inventory of basic maintenance and lubrication equipment and materials.
  • Oversee the basic maintenance and lubrication of the equipment in the relevant workplace. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that a Learner who wishes to enter a learning programme for this Unit Standard will be able to demonstrate:
  • Competence in Mathematical and Communication Skills equivalent to the NQF Level 2 requirements.
  • The procedures to assist as prescribed in performing the basic maintenance and lubrication programme in the relevant workplace in the Lumber Mill. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
  • The typical scope of this Unit Standard covers the "Range" as described in the specific outcomes of this unit standard.
  • The typical context of this unit standard is the training of a Learner at NQF Level 3 in lumber milling.
  • The level assigned to this unit standard, i.e. NQF Level 3, is appropriate because:
    > For foundational competence the learner has to demonstrate a range of well developed skills.
    > For practical competence the learner has to show ability to operate in a number of contexts, some of which may be non-routine, make significant choices from a wide range of procedures, and co-ordinate with others.
    > For reflexive competence the learner has to demonstrate the ability to handle full responsibility for quantity and quality of own output, under general supervision, with the possibility of being responsible for the output of others.
