The White Card course is a Nationally Recognised Training Course designed to provide people with a common understanding of Work, Health, Safety & Welfare principles and practices used on generic building, construction and civil sites.
This White Card training course requires the ability to demonstrate personal awareness of Work Health & Safety (WHS) legislative requirements, and the basic principles of risk management and prevention of injury and illness in the construction industry.
This course is a mandatory requirement for persons working on construction sites in Australia.
People in Adelaide who want to work on a construction site, for example, apprentices, trainees, labourers, tradespersons, contractors or any site managers or supervisors all need a white card.
This White Card course covers the basic WHS knowledge required prior to commencing work tasks within any of the sectors of the construction industry.
Many organisations and construction companies require that the White Card be the minimum entry level into any worksite under their control. There are also construction companies which provide onsite White Card training as part of the induction of their staff.
In order to work in the Construction Industry, you need to complete a White Card course.
