In our construction industry we often under estimate the safety that we have, and we do not realize what it does for us. In Hong Kong they use scaffolding called ‘bamboo scaffolding.’ this type of scaffolding led to 8 deaths in 5 years before 2008, for a cheaper scaffold. In Australia, White Card Online helps protect your safety so you do not have to construct like this. Check out the video link below for a news report on this scaffolding.

Construction work in general is dangerous work, so make sure you have your construction induction card (white card) before applying for work on a site.
