Construction Induction Card

The unit CPCCOHS1001A Work safely in the construction industry is recognised by Work Safe Victoria for the registration of construction workers for occupational health and safety induction, and is a WorkSafe requirement for students entering a construction site. The Certificate II in Civil Construction does not include this unit.  However, training providers are encouraged to provide the training enabling the CI Card to be issued prior to any Structured Workplace Learning. The unit has been included in the program as an additional elective.

Any person on a construction site needs a construction induction card. This includes all work experience or structured workplace learning students. Construction induction cards issued in other states and territories are recognised in Victoria. The major requirement is that at the time of the training the student would normally have resided in the state or territory of issue.
