Induction Training Procedures
Various types of induction training documentation to assist with managing the site induction process in the workplace can be found down the left side of this page.
This is referred to in the industry as a white card (previously a green card) and is usually delivered off site by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
Also referred to as workplace specific induction training that can be delivered in a variety of ways, including:
• site induction
• toolbox talks
• pre-start meetings
• on-the-job instructions
• one-off sessions or events called for a specific purpose
A person conducting a business or undertaking must ensure that information, training and instruction provided to a worker is suitable and adequate
If a worker has not successfully completed general construction induction training, or has successfully completed general construction induction training more than 2 years previously but has not carried out construction work in the preceding 2 years, a person conducting a business or undertaking must:
• not direct or allow the worker to carry out construction work, and
• ensure that general construction induction training is provided to a worker engaged by the person who is carrying out construction work.
Site Induction should be conducted by a person conducting a business or undertaking that has management or control at the workplace or by the principal contractor for the construction project.
