The National OHS laws commenced on 1 January 2012 for the Commonwealth, some States and all Territories. This now means that the General Construction Induction Training and whitecard issued in one State is now recognised by all State workplace regulators.
This has been achieved through some States and Territories adopting the National OHS laws and remaining States continuing their current laws. The objective of a national whitecard has now been achieved some 3 years after the first enactment of laws adopting the National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work in all States and Territories.
Please note that some State regulators still only allow their State’s local RTOs to provide face to face. This does not affect whitecards issued interstate, as these whitecards are acknowledged by all State and Territory work health and safety regulators as being valid.
A national White Card can be obtained through online learning and used in any State or Territory.
So, if you want the convenience of online whitecard training for your employees, contractors and sub-contractors, Urban E-Learning can meet your needs Australia wide.

The National OHS laws also introduced new provisions for Persons Controlling a Business or Undertaking (PCBU), allowing the PCBU to provide the General Construction Induction Training. If you prefer a uniform approach to your whitecard learning, Urban E-Learning can provide your own purchasing portal.
Where you require a customised course for General Construction Induction Training or need someone to manage your training needs for General Construction Induction Training, Urban E-Learning can meet all of your needs and provide accurate reports for compliance and audit purposes.
Please see our website at www.whitecardonline.com.au/states for more detail on how we meet the requirements of each State and Territory regulator.
The National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work (ASCC May 2007) underpins the course CPCCOHS1001A – Work Safely in the Construction Industry.
Based on successful completion of this course students will receive a Statement of Attainment and where requested issued with a whitecard for use nationally.
The whitecard is recognised by all regulators under their respective laws, as meeting the local requirements for a valid whitecard.
