You will require a general construction induction (white card) if you intend to undertake construction work in Queensland. The 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.
This knowledge can be obtained by completing the relevant competency unit with a Registered Training Provider (RTO). 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.
Once a person has completed the course; the RTO will issue a general construction induction card (white card) to them.
