The video that you can see above details some of the more unfortunate construction accidents. While some of them may be pretty hilarious, they are none the less dangerous! But it’s ok, so long as you follow the white card safety precautions you shouldn’t have any of these things happen to you….unless you’re really unfortunate! Either way, go online and get your white card brisbane (or any city) to start constructing safely!
Following the previous post containing a university lecture on construction, you may also be interested in this lecture from the same Australian university on careers in construction management.
But for a future in construction management, you will still be needing your white card, so apply for it online today!
Why White Card Brisbane Needs Documentation
As with most online courses, you will need to send some documentation into our white card Brisbane offices. You probably already know why this is, but in case you don’t – it’s so that we can identify that it was you who completed the course, that you are eligible for the course. This is simply a formality that must be done after completing your fast and straight-forward white card online process.
Ensuring you send all the information to our White Card Brisbane offices
Step 1: Finish the course and print the certificate
To begin the process, you need to first complete your course online in it’s different sections, and then print the certificate of completion.
Step 2: Filling in the statutory declaration form
Secondly, you need to complete a statutory declaration form, that is made for this site – so you cannot use any ordinary statutory declaration form. It is necessary that you complete the whole form, but do not sign it straight away as a Justice of Peace, or authorised person needs to witness you sign the form. Also note that you should complete the whole of section four on the form, which you will need your statement number for (seen on certificate), your time taken to complete (on your results page), you will need your completion date, finally, you will need your location recorded. Possibly the most important thing to note, is that you need to have a Justice of Peace (or authorized person) sign the section required on the form. It may be easier for you to have an authorized person sign your forms, so here are the requirements of an authorized person in each state.
- Queensland (Justice of the Peace and Commissioner for declarations)
- Australian Capital Territory
- Western Australia
- South Australia
- Northern Territory
- New South Wales
In conclusion, the observer section can be filled in by anyone who saw you complete the course, which may even be a family member.
Step 3: Sending Identification to the White Card Brisbane office
Within the ID section of the process, you need to be able to send in a picture of yourself in the form of ID that is in no way blurry or faded, it must also be signed by a Justice of Peace or authorized person. The ID that you send in must wither be a passport or a drivers license (it can be a photocopy of them to avoid the risk of sending the real thing); and if you don’t have either then you can send in three other forms of ID that must have your home address on them. If you are not over 16, then you will need to send in a birth certificate (or a copy of one), or a letter (with your schools letterhead on it) that is written/signed by your principle, confirming your attendance.
Step 4: Sending the Documents:
You can send your documents three different ways.
1. You can scan in your completed documents and e-mail them to, [email protected] You will receive a confirmation e-mail within 1 day after the e-mail is received.
2. Your completed documents can be sent via. mail to the following address:
Urban E-Learning Pty Ltd
PO Box 13108 George St
Brisbane QLD 4003
3. Finally, you can fax completed documents to, +61 7 3036 5964. But make sure that you include ID and your username within the documents.
White Card Brisbane will then send you your White Card!
Once we have been mailed all of your documents and looked over them, White Card Brisbane will send you the card that you have earned, so that you can get back to work. This should take no less than 10 working days to be sent.
There are a total of four different sections in the training that comes with your oh&s construction induction card (White Card).
1 – how to identify workplace health and safety (WH&S) requirements
2 – training on how to identify construction hazards and control measures;
3 – how to identify WH&S communications and reporting processes;
4 – deals with incident response procedures.
Covered within these sections are everything to do with construction site safety as required by the National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work.
(Basically, it means you can get to work at the site, safely)
Make sure you apply online for your White Card Brisbane (or any city) so that you can get your learning and education started today – and create a safer more productive work site around Australia.
Simple enough, before you step onto a construction site, you need to know what you can and can’t do, and acquiring a White Card, or a construction induction card (they’re the same thing), ensures that you avoid getting on your bosses bad side. The government has thus made it compulsory to obtain a White Card before entering a construction site for whatever reason, as outlined in each states code of practices. But you’re not just completing this course because someone told you to, you’re doing it for your own personal safety and the safety of others; you don’t want to be responsible for putting you or someone else out of work, do you?
It’s important to you AND your boss
It is compulsory to carry a White Card before being allowed to step onto a construction site, and as such certain penalties apply for breaking this legislation. Remember what I said about getting on your bosses bad side? Throwing an $11,000 fine and 100 penalty points at your boss may seem like a fitting revenge, but be assured this will reflect on you and any future work you undertake, employers don’t hire $11,000 liabilities… So to avoid this penalty, all you have to do is complete a White Card online course that only takes up to four hours, which can be done at any intervals, rather than taking away an entire working day.
How to keep your card valid
Having an invalid or expired White Card is as bad as not having a White Card at all, so to stay up to date, know that your White Card Brisbane, or whatever your town is, is invalid if:
– You have been out of the construction industry for 2 years or over
– Your supervisor or employer recognises that you need re-training to improve your risk management, supervision, incident aversion, or to improve your overall work quality.
The following list displays examples of professions that will require a White Card, but again, these are only examples.
Plumbers, Tilers, Scaffolders, Apprentices/Trainees, Drivers, Welders, Glaziers, Lift Mechanics, Bricklayers, Carpenters, Air Conditioning Installer, Builders, Engineers, Electricians, Concreters, Council Employees or Cabinet Makers.
