Why do I need a White Card?
To work in the construction industry in NSW, Australia, it is compulsory for all workers to hold a current Occupational Health and Safety Certificate, under OH&S Legislation 2001- Clause 213, 214 & 215. It is a requirement under the OH&S Codes of Practice across most jurisdictions. This accreditation allows individuals to access, or be present, on construction sites.
Persons may also be required to repeat their induction training when or if the construction work manager decides there is a need for re-training. This may be based upon supervision, incidents, risk management, continuous quality improvement or, as mentioned above, an extended absence of two years or more from the construction industry.
WHS (formally known as OHS) construction induction training cards issued between 1 September 2009 and 31 December 2011 or a former OHS induction training certificates issued between 29 March 2004 and 31 August 2009, will be recognised as a general construction induction card.
