Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry
This unit of competency specifies the mandatory work health and safety training required prior to undertaking construction work. 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. It also covers correctly selecting and fitting common personal protective equipment (PPE) used for construction work.
Under the legislation the White Card courses are competency based.

Language, Literacy and Numeracy
Under the legislation, we are able to provide you two options.
The first option; the student can effectively communicate both verbally and written and is able to competently read and write while under instruction throughout the course unassisted.
The second option requires direct assistance for the student, where writing is somewhat difficult. Therefore in regards to written assessments we are able to conduct a one-on-one verbal assessment with the student.
This process involves the assessor verbally asking the assessment questions in a one on one scenario.
This is also not a spelling test.
