The course is aimed at all workers undertaking construction work, including self-employed persons, labourers, apprentices, trades-persons, supervisors and project managers.

Students will learn the basic principles of health and safety in the construction industry as well as information about preventing workplace injury and illness, workplace injury management and workers compensation.

A reminder that WorkSafe Victoria does not recognise online training for the purpose of issuing a Construction Induction ‘white card’. To obtain a WorkSafe Victoria-issued card you must attend a course in person delivered by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) authorised to deliver construction induction training in Victoria by WorkSafe.

Your training will focus on: 

  • An explanation of work occupational health and safety requirements
  • Identification of construction hazards and control measures
  • Occupational health and safety (OHS) communication and reporting processes
  • OHS incident response procedures

WorkSafe requires a valid form of photo I.D. and AST will not be able to deliver training to any student who does not provide ID prior to the course commencing. The proof of Identity for the Construction Induction Card must be a photo ID.

  • Face-to-face
  • 1 full day (6 hours)
  • Bendigo and surrounding Central Victoria regions

The combined skills and knowledge of this one-day course do not provide for a job outcome as a qualified tradesperson, as this course is intended to prepare individuals for further training.

Assessment may consist of:

  • written answers to questions
  • role plays

Evidence may be:

  • written 
  • audio recordings
  • observation

Students must be 15 years old or older.

Access Skills Training was the best experience for me, and the best thing that I could have done.
