The construction industry is a very diverse industry that includes many different jobs like

  • Mining
  • Quarrying
  • Forestry
  • Construction of infrastructure and buildings
  • Manufacture and supply of products
  • Maintenance
  • Operation and disposal
  • And more!

The construction industry has been around for a long time, starting back in ancient times when humans began to build their own shelters, such as huts, out of the natural resources they had available around them. However since then the industry has largely evolved especially in modernized economies, but the basics are still the same.

The future outlook for the construction industry depends on location. In Australia the Construction industry generates over $360 billion in revenue, therefore the industry has a projected annual growth rate of 2.4% within the next five years.

Why you need a white card

A white card (or general construction induction card) is required for workers who want to carry out construction work and is a requirement under several legislations across Australia.

  • Part 1.1 Definitions and Part 6.5 of the Model Work Health and Safety Regulations.
  • Division 11 of Part 3 of the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996 for Western Australia; and
  • Division 3 of Part 5.1 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2007 for Victoria.

Above all, obtaining a white card means you will have the minimum requirements and skills needed to join the industry meanwhile employees will have confidence you wont adversely affect the health and safety of others.
