If you would like to work in the construction industry, you will first need to obtain a General Construction Induction Card! The General Construction Induction workshop is delivered on the Central Coast and is aimed at providing all workers carrying out construction work, including self-employed persons, labourers, apprentices, trades-persons, supervisors and project managers, with basic knowledge of WHS legislative requirements, principles of risk management, and the prevention of injury and illness in the construction industry.

Throughout the General Construction Induction workshop you will learn the basic principles of health and safety in the construction industry as well as information about preventing workplace injury and illness, workplace injury management and workers compensation. Our team of specialists will be there every step of the way, and the combination of classroom and practical exercises means you can graduate with the skills needed to begin your career in the construction industry.
