General construction induction

Find upcoming events for the work health and safety community.

The General Construction Induction card (white card) is intended to provide new and existing building and construction industry workers with the introductory understanding and knowledge needed to commence or continue work within the building and construction industry.

To hold a general construction induction card you must show knowledge of:

  • occupational health and safety legislative requirements
  • basic principles of risk management and injury and illness prevention in the construction industry.

To obtain a general construction induction card, you will need to undertake training with a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) that offers the unit of competency – CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry.

Once you have successfully completed the training, the RTO will issue evidence that you have completed the training and the white card. You should keep evidence of completion of training (your statement of attainment) as it may be required to replace your card in the future.

Read the General construction induction card summary, including how to apply for an induction card, on the Australian Business Licence and Information Service (ABLIS).
