Work Health and Safety
Under Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation all people working on construction sites must complete general construction induction training. This is often referred to as a ‘White Card’, or ‘Blue Card’ depending on the training done or the location. In any case, it’s needed before entering a construction site. Safe Work NSW provides information in this area for states and territories.
