This course has replaced the Red Card and covers the basic Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Induction course which, under OHS regulations, must be completed before you start work on a construction site.
On successful completion of this course, students will receive a Statement of Attainment for the following nationally accredited unit of competency:
CPCCOHS1001A Work Safely in the Construction Industry.
Prerequisite: Conversational english skills such as reading, writing and speaking are required so that you can complete the assessment, read and interpret signs and procedures, and communicate clearly in the workplace. It is a WorkSafe Victoria directive that an interpreter or translation apps must not be used.
Completion of this course does not automatically entitle the student to employment in the Industry. State age regulations still apply for employment. For further information please visit https://www.fairwork.gov.au/find-help-for/young-workers-and-students/what-age-can-i-startwork#vic
By enrolling in this course, the student agrees and understands that refunds or transfers will not be given to students who do not meet the required literacy skills to successfully complete this course.
