White Card SA: From Just $38.50 For ONLINE Course!
Does South Australia Accept Online White Cards?
Previously, the Safework SA Website contained the following advice about White Cards:
“The adoption of the Code essentially removes a layer of red tape in hiring construction employees in SA. It recognises safety induction training performed interstate, thereby avoiding the need to duplicate it for access to SA sites. The safety induction training is recognised across all states.
The Code brings together best practice from Australian state and territory OHS authorities into a framework to promote a nationally uniform approach to OHS induction training in the building and construction industry.
The Code supersedes the current SA general induction training, SA Construction Industry Common Site Safety Induction Course, commonly known within the industry as the SA Green Card, which is facilitated by the SA Construction Industry Training Board (CITB).
As a transitional phasing in arrangement, all current SA Green Cards will be recognised in SA. As each Green Card expires, holders will be required to undertake additional training to satisfy the Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work and obtain a “White Card”.
Currently, The Safework South Australia website expresses revised opinions about online training:
The updated website states:
“Construction site managers in South Australia may choose to refuse entry to a person, or require a person to undertake further training if the person has not undertaken face-to-face training.”
Urban E-Learning’s training provides you with a Nationally Recognised Credential and a White card that must be accepted in All States of Australia – Click here for More information.
For your information, you should be aware that employees may be required to undertake further training as required by organisations from time to time.
The Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work describes three types of induction training:
- General induction training – the course CPCCWHS1001: Prepare to work safely in the construction industry, commonly called ‘White Card’ training. This is entry-level, basic construction safety training.
- Site-specific induction training – training organised by a particular employer or work site to provide participants with knowledge of health and safety issues and safe work practices specific to that site.
- Task-specific induction training – training for a specific task or type of work, such as high-risk construction work. This sort of training assists the participant to gain the knowledge needed to undertake a particular occupation safely.
In addition to holding a ‘White Card’ to show that a person has undertaken general induction training, an employer or person in control of a site may require that person to undertake site specific training or task-specific training. Also, an employer is entitled to require a person to undertake refresher training if he or she considers that it is necessary.
