Construction Induction Card

The unit CPCCOHS1001A Work safely in the construction industry is recognised by WorkSafe Victoria for the registration of construction workers for occupational health and safety induction, and is a WorkSafe requirement for students entering a construction site. Completing this unit will meet the requirements for being issued the Construction Induction Card (CI Card).

The Certificate II in Electrotechnology includes the unit CPCCOHS1001A Work safely in the construction industry with an allocation of 6 hours. Training providers are encouraged to provide the training enabling the CI Card to be issued prior to any Structured Workplace Learning.

Any person on a construction site needs a Construction Induction Card (CI Card). This includes all work experience or Structured Workplace Learning students. CI 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.
