Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry CPCCWHS1001

Before commencing work on any construction site in Australia, workers are required to hold evidence of general construction induction under the applicable occupational health and safety laws of each state or territory jurisdiction.

Formally known in Western Australia as the “Blue Card”, this nationally recognised unit has been replaced by the “Construction Induction Card” or the “White Card”. The course is aimed to provide participants with the essential knowledge and skills to work in a range of construction sites.

This nationally recognised unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to undertake Occupational Health and Safety (WHS) induction training within the construction industry. It requires the ability to demonstrate personal awareness of WHS legislative requirements, and the basic principles of risk management and prevention of injury and illness in the construction industry.
