Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry CPCCWHS1001

A white card (or general construction induction card) is required for workers who want to carry out construction work.
People who need a white card include:
• site managers, supervisors, surveyors, labourers and tradespeople
• people who access operational construction zones (unaccompanied or not directly supervised by an inducted person)
• workers whose employment causes them to routinely enter operational construction zones. 

The white card becomes void if you haven't carried out construction work for two consecutive years or more. Successful completion of this unit requires the person to demonstrate personal awareness and knowledge of health and safety legislative requirements in order to work safely and prevent injury or harm to self and others.

The course material covers identifying and orally reporting common construction hazards, understanding basic risk control measures, and identifying procedures for responding to potential incidents and emergencies. It also covers correctly selecting and fitting common personal protective equipment (PPE) used for construction work.

Introduction

Course Delivery
The course will see the candidate attend the College for one (1) day. The course is mixed mode delivery with participants undertaking theory based learning in the classroom. Some practical activities will be undertaken (where suitable), this will see participants involved in group activities such as applying PPE correctly, completing a risk assessment, being involved in consultation in developing a safe work method statement and also reviewing emergency procedures and identifying a fire extinguisher and other relevant information. These activities will run in various weather temperature fluctuations. Please ensure that you wear appropriate clothing including enclosed footwear.

Licencing and Regulations
Legislative and regulatory requirements are applicable to this unit of competency. This unit meets the general construction induction training requirements of:

  • Part 1.1 Definitions and Part 6.5 of the Model Work Health and Safety Regulations;
  • Division 11 of Part 3 of the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996 for Western Australia; and
  • Division 3 of Part 5.1 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2007 for Victoria.
Upon completion of training with the RTO, and if deemed competent, the student will be issued with an Interim Certificate that will be valid for 60 days (allowing them to work) until their White card arrives (in less than 30 days). This assessment is conducted by a Safework approved Training organisation.
