The National Standard for Construction Work [NOHSC:1016 (2005)] aims to protect persons from the hazards associated with construction work. It details the types of induction training, including General Induction training, that is needed to provide construction workers with an awareness and understanding of common hazards on construction sites and how they should be managed. The National Standard, adopted by all State and Territory governments, requires construction workers to complete nationally-recognised unit CPCCOHS1001A (Work Safely in the Construction Industry) as a prerequisite to obtaining a Contruction Induction Card (or White Card) for the purposes of entering upon or accessing a construction site.


CPCCOHS1001A - Work Safely in the Construction Industry:
This unit specifies the outcomes required to undertake OHS induction training within the construction industry. It requires the ability to demonstrate personal awareness of OHS legislative requirements, and the basic principles of risk management and prevention of injury and illness in the construction industry.
