2 The following apply to the performance of all outcomes of this unit standard:
a All work practices must meet recognised codes of practice and documented worksite health and safety and environmental procedures (where these exceed code) for personal, product, and worksite health and safety, and must meet the obligations required under current legislation, including the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992, the Resource Management Act 1991, and their subsequent amendments.
b All work practices must meet documented worksite operating procedures. This includes the recording (by electronic or non-electronic means) of activities, events, and decisions.
c All evidence of communications gathered in relation to this unit standard must be in accordance with worksite procedures for content, recipient, timing, and method.
Chipping, for the purpose of this unit standard, is synonymous with the term tipping.
Worksite policies and procedures refer to documented policies and to documented or other directions provided to staff. These include, but are not limited to, ways of managing health and safety, environmental considerations, quality, and production, and must conform to legislation. Examples include standard operating procedures, company health and safety plans, on-site briefings, and supervisor’s instructions.
Outcomes and evidence requirements Outcome 1 Manage hazards associated with swaging and shaping a saw.
Evidence requirements 1.1 Hazards associated with swaging and shaping a saw are identified and actions to be taken to isolate, minimise or eliminate the hazard are described in accordance with worksite policies and procedures.
Range hazards may include but are not limited to – moving equipment, dust, mobile plant, noise.
1.2 Safe work practices associated with swaging and shaping a saw are identified and used in accordance with worksite policies and procedures and legislative requirements.
Range practices may include but are not limited to – isolation procedures, lock-outs, emergency stops, machine guarding, wearing of appropriate safety equipment.
Outcome 2 Prepare saws for swaging and shaping.
Evidence requirements 2.1 Saw and work areas are cleaned of all foreign matter that could affect swaging and shaping operations.
2.2 Saw teeth are checked for damage and evenness, and the requirement for swaging and shaping is determined with regard to required kerf.
2.3 Tools are checked for wear and damage and remedial action is taken in accordance with worksite policies and procedures.
Range micrometers, callipers, wire and dial gauges, swage, shaper, manufacturer's adjustment tools, files, saw set, swaging clamp, anvil, die, clamp screws.
2.4 Saw is clamped for stability during swaging and shaping.
2.5 Saw tooth faces are lubricated in accordance with worksite policies and procedures.
2.6 Saw is positioned in the middle of the barrel slot, with even adjustment of the clamp screws.
Outcome 3 Swage saws.
Evidence requirements 3.1 Front stop screw is adjusted to prevent the die from striking the anvil.
3.2 One tooth is swaged and checked for required size, and the swage is re-adjusted if required.
3.3 All teeth are swaged to required size.
3.4 Swage is adjusted for the saw gauge.
Range front stop, anvil.
3.5 Anvil is set to the anvil setting gauge, allowing removal of the gauge by hand.
3.6 Anvil is adjusted to sit flat on the backs of the teeth.
Outcome 4 Chip saws.
Evidence requirements 4.1 Need for chipping is determined in accordance with worksite policies and procedures.
4.2 Teeth are chipped so the length of the swage is even on each tooth.
Outcome 5 Shape saws.
Evidence requirements 5.1 Shaper dies are adjusted to the saw plate thickness and parallel to one another in all directions.
5.2 Shaper tooth stop is adjusted for the finished swage size.
5.3 All teeth are shaped to required size and meet requirements for clearness.

Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMR) reference
This CMR can be accessed at http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/framework/search/index.do.
Providers must be granted consent to assess against standards (accredited) by NZQA, before they can report credits from assessment against unit standards or deliver courses of study leading to that assessment.
Industry Training Organisations must be granted consent to assess against standards by NZQA before they can register credits from assessment against unit standards.
Providers and Industry Training Organisations, which have been granted consent and which are assessing against unit standards must engage with the moderation system that applies to those standards.
Requirements for consent to assess and an outline of the moderation system that applies to this standard are outlined in the Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMR). The CMR also includes useful information about special requirements for organisations wishing to develop education and training programmes, such as minimum qualifications for tutors and assessors, and special resource requirements.
