Injuries on a Construction Site

When you think of jobs where you would have a higher than average risk of being seriously hurt, or even fatally injured, you don’t normally think of the construction Industry. But shockingly, in the ranking of Australia’s most dangerous jobs, the construction industry came the third in the list created by finder.com.au using the most recently released figures from Safe Work Australia.

In NSW alone in the past three years around 25,000 workers have been injured, more than 1,700 have been permanently disabled, and 23 people have been killed.


By completing an online whitecard course you will find out about the general safety requirements on a job site in Australia. You will learn how to find a safety hazard and report this hazard, how to reduce the risk of an injury or accident happening on a job site, and what actions to take in case accident does happen on a job site.

  Thinking of getting a trade apprenticeship? You will need a White Card.

Apprenticeships are a combination of paid work and off-the-job training (college) that, if successfully completed, will gain you a nationally recognised trade qualification.

One prerequisite that most trade apprentices need is the White Card Construction Induction (Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry), or White Card for short.


One of the basic requirements for being employed as a first-year apprentice is that you hold a valid white Card. You must be aged over 14 to complete the course and it can be completed 100% online.

Apprentices need to do this course (the online White Card Course) so that they meet WHS regulatory authority requirements for WHS induction in their Australian state or territory. Competency must be achieved before access is granted to any building and construction work site.

This unit of competency (CPCCWHS1001) specifies the outcomes required to undertake Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) induction training within the construction industry. It requires the ability to demonstrate personal awareness of WHS legislative requirements, and the basic principles of risk management and prevention of injury and illness in the construction industry.


Allens Training (RTO 90909), one of Australia’s largest private training companies, offers the White Card course online for the price of $69, payable only after you successfully complete the course.

Recognising that technology is a large part of training these days, Allens Training has streamlined the online course to allow access from all electronic devices, regardless of location or time of day.


As an apprentice, you may also need to complete Provide CPR and Provide First Aid courses.

Electrical apprentices may also need to complete the Low Voltage Panel & CPR (UETTDRRF06B & HLTAID001) skills set.
