Prepare to work safely in the construction industry
CPCCWHSD1001 CONTROL TRAFFIC WITH A STOP/SLOW BAT
From February 2019, it is mandatory that all training for the white card must be undertaken face to face in Queensland. An exemption applies allowing candidates who reside further than 100 kilometres away from the nearest RTO delivering face to face white card training to complete the white card training via online delivery.
A White Card is a mandatory requirement to enable a worker to legally enter a construction site, whether it be on an actual site or one created by you whilst working in public areas.
To obtain a valid White Card you will have complete a certified face-to-face general construction induction training with a registered training organisation (RTO).
Upon completion, you will be registered with Workplace Health & Safety Queensland.
This course covers the general safety requirements of an operational safety site within Australia.
According to National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work, people who will require a White Card are:
- Construction workers
- Site managers
- People who access operational construction zones unaccompanied or unsupervised
- Workers who routinely enter operational construction zones
The training provides you with Australia’s legal requirements for workplace health and safety on a construction site. This
- How to identify a safety hazard
- How to report a safety issue on a worksite
- What measures should be taken to reduce the risk of accident or injury
- How to correctly respond to a workplace health and safety incident
As it is a very interactive training you will be required to participate in various class activities.
There is an assessment to complete which you must pass in order to receive your White Card.
It is recommended to have at least a basic understanding of the English language, in order to be able to follow the course material and pass the test at the end.
Upon completing your training, you will be issued with a Statement of Attainment and your wallet sized card, which will allow you to start work immediately.
