This unit of competency specifies the mandatory work health and safety training required prior to undertaking construction work. The unit requires the person to demonstrate personal awareness and knowledge of health and safety legislative requirements in order to work safely and prevent injury or harm to self and others.
It covers identifying and orally reporting common construction hazards, understanding basic risk control measures, and identifying procedures for responding to potential incidents and emergencies. It also covers correctly selecting and fitting common personal protective equipment (PPE) used for construction work.
It’s as simple as enrol online, successfully complete the face to face course, finalise your paperwork and then receive your White Card. Complete in 3-4 hours (+ Assessment). Practicals are only available in our Brisbane and Mackay Training Centres. From the 1st of February 2019, the course requirements have changed and now includes direct real time observation of the learner by an assessor and students having access to PPE during the assessment. To meet these requirements, training must be delivered face to face unless the student is located at least 100km away from the nearest RTO offering face to face delivery, in which case, the course can be completed online.View All Course Dates Enrol Now
