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

The Western Australia regulator allows the White Card program to be delivered online to WA residents only.

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 WA, employers may require training to be repeated if workers are not in the workforce for more than two years.

  • 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

  • Our online course was built from the ground up by industry experts. It is designed to be easy to use, easy to understand and works on multiple devices and platforms.

    • Eye protection

  • If you don’t already have access to the required PPE we recommend you borrow it, otherwise you can purchase these items very cheaply from a retailer such as Bunnings.

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

It was easy. I filled out the enrolment form & paid online, login details were emailed to me and in minutes I was in doing the course on my iPad. It only took me a couple of hours to complete and was actually quite fun to do! Thanks Pinnacle!
