PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Learners' who are assessed as competent against this unit standard will be able to construct on site sanitation facilities on sites where houses are being built for the community in accordance with the applicable National Building standards and health and safety regulations ensuring that prescribed time frames are adhered to.

The competencies contained in this unit standard will provide Community House Builders with an area of specialisation that will lead to the development of enhanced skills and knowledge amongst professional Community House Builders who are able to protect the environment surrounding the building site and promote good health and well-being amongst building site personnel through the provision of adequate on-site sanitation facilities.

The contribution to The National Skills Development Strategy is the key developmental interface between Learners' and new competencies to be achieved.
