Who needs to do the White Card course in Western Australia?
The requirements for construction induction training apply to construction work. The definition of construction work under the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984 and Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996 is very broad and includes a wide range of activities.
Construction work is defined in the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996 [Regulation 1.3] as meaning:
(a) the construction, erection, installation, alteration, repair, maintenance, cleaning, painting, renewal, removal, excavation, dismantling or demolition of, or addition to, any building or structure, or any work in connection with any of those things, that is done at or adjacent to the place where the building or structure is located
(b) work on which a hoisting appliance or any scaffold or shoring is used or intended to be used
(c) work in driving or extracting piles, sheet piles or trench sheet
(d) work in laying any pipe or work in lining pipe that is done at or adjacent to the place where the pipe is laid or to be laid
(e) work in sinking or lining or altering, repairing, maintaining, renewing, removing or dismantling a well or borehole
(f) road works, earthworks or reclamation
(g) work in laying an underground cable that is done at or adjacent to the place where the cable is laid or to be laid
