Course Overview

Our white card construction induction training course is designed to train participants in how to carry out tasks safely whilst working in the construction industry.

The course teaches participants personal awareness of occupational health and safety legislative requirements, and the basic principles of risk management and prevention of injury and illness in the construction industry.

The unit relates directly to the general induction training program specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work (ASCC 2007).

State Recognition and Currency

In 2019, state regulators made changes to the way the White Card program is to be delivered in Australia. In New South Wales, obtaining a White Card via online training is no longer permitted, and the course must be undertaken face-to-face in the classroom.

White Cards issued by Pinnacle Safety and Training are accepted in all states and territories in Australia.

Organisations and businesses may have internal polices which require that White Cards be obtained through specific training organisations, or by specific methods of training delivery. If in doubt, ask your prospective employer.

In NSW, the White Card ceases to be current if the cardholder has not worked in the construction industry for two years or more.

Course Outline

The key areas covered by this course include:

  • Identifying relevant standards and legislation requirements related to working on a construction site
  • Identifying construction hazards and control measures
  • Identify ways to communicate risks and hazards to superiors and workers on site
  • Applying basic risk management principles and assessment of construction work
  • Identifying responsibilities and rights of workers and supervisors on site
  • Applying safe work practices whilst working on construction sites

Course Inclusions

  • We offer face to face training conducted by an experienced instructor with strong knowledge of relevant legislation and Australian Standards and practices of occupational health and safety on a construction site. This includes practical hands-on training.

Each Trainee Must Provide

Participants must:

  • Be at least 15 years of age
  • Have access to 100 points of identification (multiple documents). Please note that arriving without these documents will result in you being turned away from the course. See below for acceptable forms of evidence you will need to prepare before the course

  • Have the ability to read and write English

NSW face to face participants: Evidence of identity documents

SafeWork NSW require that participants must supply original evidence of identity (EOI) documents that add up to at least 100 points. Within these documents participants must be able to show:

  • a photo
  • date of birth (minimum age 15 years)
  • signature
  • current residential address
  • Click here to view document types and their associated points.
  • These documents must be supplied to the trainer on the day of training. Failure to supply the required documents will result in exclusion from the course and rebooking fees will apply.

The course was straightforward, the slides and presentation were perfect.

The video presentation for explaining the P.A.S.S (pull, aim, squeeze and sweep) and the real life story video from construction people were really helpful in understanding the value of the induction. The overall course content is very interactive and I would recommend the same to my friends! Thanks.
