CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry (White Card)

Who Should Gain a White Card?

Any person who conducts construction-type work in Queensland. Construction type work means work that contributes directly to the erection, construction, extension or structural alteration of a building or part of a building, civil construction or demolition work. This study provides new and existing building and construction industry participants with the introductory understanding and knowledge needed to commence or continue work in the building and construction industry.

From February 2019, training for the white card must be undertaken face to face in Queensland.


Who is eligible to undertake this training?

A minimum standard of English is necessary to successfully complete general construction induction training. 


At the completion of the course participants will be able to:

  • determine and apply basic risk management concepts in relation to construction type work
  • read, interpret and apply all safety instructions as required
  • identify and follow standard work procedures in the event of an emergency
  • report hazards and potential workplace incidents to appropriate personnel
  • determine their roles, rights and responsibilities under laws

How will I be assessed?

Participant’s competencies will be assessed through completion of theory and practical activities. Practical activities include a verbal discussion with a trainer/assessor, and a visual demonstration of putting on certain items of PPE.

Please note TMT will supply the PPE for students to use for their demonstration.

Upon successful completion participants will be issued with a statement of attainment for the unit of competency CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry, and a Laminated White Card.
