RIIMPO323A – Conduct Civil Construction Dozer Operations

At Gallmac, we have established a detailed training plan for our dozer operations course providing students with the knowledge and practical experience to operate a dozer across many worksites within Australia. We strive in offering our students the best learning experience through small classes and in some cases a one-on-one basis, allowing sufficient time for our practical training which is crucial for real-world onsite operations.

A dozer, also known as a bulldozer, is a tractor like machine with a blade attached to the front and a claw type device attached to the back. The claw device on the back is used for loosening compacted materials whereas the blade in front is used for moving large quantities of materials that arise during construction. Crawler dozers, mini dozers and wheeled dozers are just a few of the dozers available and can all be equipped with various attachments, making it an extremely versatile machine across many industries.

At Gallmac, our extensive training will teach you how to plan and prepare a job for dozer activities, conduct before and after operational checks, safely operate a dozer in various work environments, select and fit an attachment suitable to the job in hand, relocate a dozer between work sites and finally maintain a clear work site.

This course in its entirety will be taught by our highly knowledgeable and experienced trainers through written and practical teachings at our onsite training centre in Brisbane. The course content will include, but is not limited to the following;

  • Hazard identification, environmental issues and control implementation
  • Health and safety legislation, Australian standards and codes of practice
  • How to operate a dozer
  • Routine operational checks
  • Characteristics, capabilities and limitations of the various dozers and their attachments
  • Fitting, removing and storing of attachments
  • Maintenance and isolation procedures
  • Relocation of a dozer
  • Earthwork calculations
  • Effective communication in the workplace
  • Documentation relevant to all dozer operations

The successful applicant will have the ability to carry out the following duties;

  • Identify potential hazards in the workplace such as power lines, ground stability and weather conditions and report according to site procedures
  • Monitor hazards continuously to ensure the safety of all workers onsite
  • Assess the possible risks and implement control measures to prevent hazards from reoccurring
  • Conduct before and after operational checks of the dozer and its attachments
  • Operate a dozer in line with changing work conditions and apply the necessary techniques to suit
  • Complete dozer operations including cutting and filling, stockpiling, cutting drains and back filling
  • Recognise the characteristics and functions of the various dozers and attachments available
  • Understand the capabilities and limitations of various attachments such as rakes, blades and ploughs
  • Carry out maintenance on machinery and equipment and isolate if faulty in line with site procedures
  • Relocate a dozer between work sites assisting with a float when necessary
  • Effectively communicate with all workplace personnel and ensure communication equipment such as two-way radios and signs are in place

On successful completion of this course, students will have the knowledge and hands-on experience to operate a dozer in compliance with relevant health and safety legislation and all other obligatory regulations.

Our highly experienced industry trainers will ensure you are prepared for future employment in many industries including the construction and mining industries.
