This unit of competency specifies the mandatory work health and safety training required prior to undertaking construction work. The unit requires the person to demonstrate personal awareness and knowledge of health and safety legislative requirements in order to work safely and prevent injury or harm to self and others. It covers identifying and orally reporting common construction hazards, understanding basic risk control measures, and identifying procedures for responding to potential incidents and emergencies. It also covers correctly selecting and fitting common personal protective equipment (PPE) used for construction work.
All people performing construction work require proof of having completed a general Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) construction induction training for the industry. An employer must accept a Construction Induction card which will allow you into the premises of a worksite.
Once you have competed your training AAS will submit your details to WorkSafe to issue your Construction Induction Card. While you wait for your construction induction card to be issued, you can use the ‘statement of attainment’ issued by the RTO as proof of having completed the training.
