Construction Induction Training Card - Victoria

Service summary

It is a requirement that every worker on a construction site has a card or other proof verifying their completion of basic occupational health and safety (OHS) training.

The aim of the induction training is to make sure that workers are familiar with the OHS rules and procedures of a typical construction site, for example, the emergency procedures, the arrangements for supervision of the work, who the Health & Safety Representatives (HSR) are and any specific issues on the site.

The induction training must be provided by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). On completion of the OHS induction training the training organisation will forward your details to the Agency, who will issue you with a construction induction card or certificate allowing you to work on a construction site in Victoria.

Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
