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.

The case for endorsement was considered by the AISC at its July 2021 meeting. The case was not approved and the AISC agreed to refer the case back to the Construction IRC to provide further evidence of how the proposed changes respond to the findings of the ASQA Strategic Review of Training for the White Card for Australia’s Construction Industry.
