White Card Training

On Friday 19 February an enthusiastic group of Year 11 and 12 Workplace Learning students attended a whole day incursion to complete safety training in the Unit of Competency CPCCWHS1001 “Prepare to Work Safely”, in the construction industry (known as the ‘White Card’).

As part of the training the students were required to:

  • Identify health and safety legislative requirements of construction work
  • Identify construction hazards and risk control measures
  • Identify health and safety communication and reporting processes
  • Identify incident and emergency response

To achieve the White Card, the students were required to complete written questions, a verbal assessment and practical demonstrations. Under the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996, individuals must hold a construction induction certificate (White Card) to undertake construction work at a workplace.

The students all successfully completed the course and will receive a White Card, and a Statement of Attainment for the Unit of Competency, which is recognised nationally.

We would like to thank Chris Gray from the Apprentice and Traineeship Company for providing the excellent training to our students.
