Nationally consistent rules for the construction industry across state and territory borders is important if we want to promote safety and boost productivity.

In the past national rules have yieled mixed results but the National Construction Code was largely sucessful. An article on Sourceable.net.au questioned whether the NCC had delivered what it aimed to or whether the consistency strived for by the NCC was being done away with by a tendency to interfere with the code at state and local levels.

One area where consistency has paid off is the area of construction induction training.

At the beginning of 2012, the government implemented federal WH&S law which mandated induction training take the form of the White Card Course. The White Card replaced all other coloured cards for individual states and territories. This has made cross border work easier and resulted in more consistency in the relm of construction safety.
