Our CPCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry course is a mandatory health and safety legal requirement in Australia for all people who are involved in the construction industry and highly regarded in many other work environments.

Health and safety legislation describes construction work as any work carried out in connection with the construction, alteration, conversion, fitting-out, commissioning, renovation, repair, maintenance, refurbishment, demolition, decommissioning or dismantling of a structure.

An employer must make sure that anyone carrying out construction work has completed and carries with them an official valid Construction Induction White Card.

This course is designed to help you;

  • Identify  health  and safety  legislative requirements  of construction  work
  • Identify construction hazards  and risk control measures
  • Identify  health  and safety communication and reporting processes
  • Identify  incident and emergency response procedures.
