Obtaining a White Card requires the successful completion of CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry unit of competency, delivered by various RTOs around the country. The White Card is an essential feature of construction work in Australia, providing induction safety training for workers. This includes managers, supervisors, surveyors, labourers and tradespeople, as well as others with less regular need to access active construction sites. The unit equips candidates with the necessary knowledge and skills to safely enter construction sites. The CPCCWHS1001 project is exploring possible amendments to the assessment requirements of the unit of competency so as to better address industry concerns around assessment quality, online identity fraud, and appropriate language and literacy.

We have received Skills Ministers endorsement for training package products approved by the AISC at its December 2021 meeting.

By way of reminder, changes to the foundations skills and assessment requirements of CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry were undertaken to better address industry concerns around assessment quality, online identity fraud, and appropriate language and literacy. The nature of the changes also resulted in a code modification, from CPCCWHS1001 to CPCWHS1001.
