Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry

The CPCCWHS1001: Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry course is a requirement for anyone who wants to work on a construction site. It covers important topics such as safety regulations, hazard identification, and risk control. Before beginning work on a construction site, a construction worker must have completed general construction induction training (also known as the "White Card"). This is a mandatory requirement in Australia.

If you have never worked in the construction industry before or you have lost your White Card; then this is the course for you.

This course will help introduce you to or serve as a reminder of the current health and safety legislative requirements, personal awareness, and the basic principles of risk management for working in the construction industry 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.
