General Construction Induction Card (White Card)

Overview

Construction workers in the ACT require a General Construction Induction Card (White Card) when working on a construction site.


The Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 requires that a person conducting a business or undertaking must ensure workers have successfully completed general construction induction training before starting construction work. Each construction worker must hold:

  • A general construction induction training card
  • A general construction induction training certification that has been issued within the preceding 60 days if the worker has applied for but not yet been issued with a general construction induction training card.

WorkSafe ACT considers it best practice for owner builders to have a construction induction card, as one way of demonstrating that they have received adequate training in complying with their primary duty of care under the Act.
