What is the White Card?

The National Construction Induction Card, otherwise known as a White Card, is required to be held by those who:

  • Carry out construction work, including site managers and supervisors, surveyors, labourers and trades persons,
  • Access operational construction zones unaccompanied or not directly supervised by an inducted person
  • Whose employment causes them to routinely enter operational construction zones.

This nationally recognised card signifies that the person named on the card has completed training in WHS ‘General Induction for Construction’, which is compliant with the “National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work.”

The White Card is evidence of General Induction Training only. Employers will need to ensure that Site Induction and/or Task-Specific Induction is also provided.

What is WHS Construction Induction Training”

Construction safety awareness training is undertaken prior to commencing construction work. It includes general, site induction and task-specific training that meets the requirements of the Code of Practice and is completed to the satisfaction of the person delivering the training.

Unique Student Identifier

As this course is nationally accredited, each participant will need a Unique Student Identifier (USI). This links all training records together for students undertaking nationally recognised training, rather than these records only being kept by each training organisation. Statements of Attainments and White Cards cannot be issued to Students without a USI.

If you do not have a USI, apply online at www.usi.gov.au.
