White Card Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Get A White Card?

Attaining a white card is relatively easy – just book in with Leading Safety Training, and we’ll get you sorted! We offer white card courses across NSW, with our fantastic physical locations for face-to-face training and Zoom offerings for virtual courses.

To get a white card, you need to complete general construction induction training with a registered training organisation, like Leading Safety Training. To be eligible for the course, you’ll need 100 points of identification to verify your important details.

The course for attaining a white card involves basic construction health and safety training and will take less than a full day to complete. Previously known as the Blue Card, Red Card or Green Card course, depending on your state, this course for a white card is mandatory for anyone who works or wants to work in the construction industry.

 

What Is A White Card Used For?

A white card, also referred to as a general construction induction card, is a mandatory card required by all workers who operate on a construction site. The white card course comprises important topics about health and safety in the workplace. Having the appropriate training and white card accreditation means less risk of experiencing an accident on-site, or indeed, causing one.

According to SafeWork Australia, there were a total of 114,435 serious injury claims and 183 worker fatalities between 2018 and 2019. Training for white card certification is designed to directly equip construction and tradespeople with the right knowledge and skill to prevent and avoid workplace injury and fatality.

White card training is designed to raise awareness of the best practices while operating in construction sites, to eliminate risks that cause injuries and fatalities in the workplace. The training requires students to demonstrate personal awareness of Work Health & Safety legislative requirements, the basics of risks management and injury and illness prevention best practices in the construction sector.

 

Who Needs A White Card?

Generally speaking, anyone who works in the construction industry requires a valid white card. This includes site managers, supervisors, surveyors, labourers, and tradespeople. People who access operational construction zones, both unaccompanied and not directly supervised, will also require white cards. Similarly, workers whose employment causes them to routinely enter operational construction sites will also need to obtain training for a white card.

 

How Long Does A White Card Last?

Under the current legislation, white cards do not expire until you cease to work in the industry. Once you have been certified with your white card, it will remain valid while you continue to operate in the construction industry. However, if you cease to work in construction for two consecutive years, you will need to renew your white card accreditation and refresh your knowledge by completing the training again.

 

How Much Does It Cost to Get Your White Card?

It costs $120 to get your white card. Here at Leading Safety Training, there are no hidden fees, and we won’t overcharge you for a simple course. We offer upfront, transparent pricing and are more focused on ensuring each person that wishes to operate in the construction field is equipped with the right safety knowledge and skills.
