This course describes the skills and knowledge required to conduct tip truck operations in the resources and infrastructure industries.
It applies to those working in supervisory and technical specialist roles. They generally work under minimal supervision to undertake a broad range of skilled applications in varied work contexts, using some discretion and judgement in selecting equipment, services or contingency measures.
A tip truck is a truck used for transporting loose materials (such as sand, gravel or dirt) for construction. A typical tip truck is equipped with an open-box bed, which is hinged at the rear and equipped with hydraulic pistons to lift the front, allowing the materials in the bed to be deposited (dumped) on the ground behind the truck at the site of delivery.
It is important to follow all appropriate procedures and guidelines when operating a Belly Dump Truck. This will ensure the belly dump is operated within applicable guidelines and that work is conducted in a safe manner.
