white card

CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry

This training is mandatory for people working in the building and construction industry.  Commonly referred to in NSW as a ‘white card’ this construction induction training is mandated by SafeWork NSW to be conducted in face-to-face training over a period of not less than 6 hours.

A nationally recognised Statement of Attainment will be issued on the day to each successful participant along with a Statement of Training from SafeWork NSW.  These two certificates will allow you to work on site immediately.

The card subsequently issued by SafeWork NSW is nationally recognised. It will be mailed directly to each individual by SafeWork NSW.

If you are working (or planning to work) in the building and construction industry, landscaping, lawn mowing, maintenance, fencing, roofing, etc. you are required to undergo this training and show the card on demand.  The same applies if you work in other related industries such as Real Estate where you enter areas under construction or renovation.  Architects, tradesmen, road workers, office workers, truck drivers and plant operators must have a white card to enter a construction zone, regardless of the reason.

Beware of companies offering online training as this contravenes the training requirements by the Australian Safety Council and SafeWork NSW.  SafeWork NSW does not issue cards for online training.
