This video shows us the basic dos and don’ts of construction safety by demonstrating the consequences for mistakes or negligence when it comes to safety. Although it may seem funny, these incidents could turn out much worse, workers could have been injured, even fatally.
In order to avoid these kinds of incidents it is imperative that all workers who enter the construction industry undergo general construction safety training, in the form of The White Card.
As this video shows, accidents on construction sites are avoidable with the proper precautions and safety measures but in order for workers to become familiar with these measures they need to undergo the appropriate safety training, ie. The White Card. That is why the Australian government has made the White Card a mandatory requirement for any worker entering the construction industry.
Luckily the White Card is not complicated to obtain, it is as simple as completing the course online, when and where it suits you. The course is comprehensive and most importantly it teaches workers entering the construction industry exactly what type of hazards they will be faced with and for experienced workers it is a refresher course on the correct methods to undertake to overcome safety hazards.
