CPCWHS1001 Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry

The CPCWHS1001 Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry course is a unit of competency that specifies the mandatory work health and safety training required prior to undertaking construction work and is required to be completed to obtain your Construction White Card.

The unit requires the person to demonstrate personal awareness and knowledge of health and safety legislative requirements in order to work safely and prevent injury or harm to self and others. It covers identifying and orally reporting common construction hazards, understanding basic risk control measures, and identifying procedures for responding to potential incidents and emergencies.

A White Card is required for:

  • All persons who carry out construction work, including site managers and supervisors, surveyors
  • Labourers and tradespersons, who access operational construction zones unaccompanied or not directly supervised by an inducted person
  • All persons whose employment causes them to routinely enter operational construction zones
