White Card Online

If you have never worked in the construction industry before or you have lost your White Card; then the online White Card course is just for you.  The White Card online course is always conducted by experienced and passionate construction industry specialists, providing you with a higher level of construction knowledge, skills and most importantly confidence.

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 in order to work safely and prevent injury or harm to self and others.

During the White Card online course we will cover 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.

The White Card online course is a mandatory requirement for individuals seeking to work in the construction industry.  The White Card obtained in this course replaces the former QLD Construction Induction (Bluecard).
