Learn Health and Safety on a Construction Induction Course in Melbourne and Dandenong
It might sound like an obvious thing to say, but construction sites are dangerous places for the unqualified. A construction induction course can change all of that. Often, when you’re driving past a building site, you’ll see a multitude of signs each spelling out a different warning or demanding that you do certain things before entering. For example, there will be signs to say all vehicles must report in before going further, and others to remind workers to wear a hard hat and work boots. Other signs might warn of specific dangers, such as large excavations and unstable structures.
Does this all seem reasonable and common sense to you? Or does it seem like it’s a bit over the top? Some might say it’s too much – but these are people that probably have never worked in construction before, and don’t know the dangers and hazards that present themselves in this hazardous environment. The warnings are there for a reason, to protect workers, and to keep everyone safe.
This information is what you will learn on a construction induction course in Melbourne.
Join a Construction Induction Course in Melbourne and Dandenong, Victoria
It’s a legal requirement to own a construction induction card (or white card) while working on a construction site in Australia. Insisting on workers having this card is a good way to ensure that everyone has a basic understanding of how a worksite operates, and how to remain safe. By joining a construction induction course in Victoria, you’ll learn about all the necessary legal requirements and obligations of workers in construction, and what to expect when on the job.
A big part of the construction induction course is obviously health and safety. There are very few accidents on work sites in Australia, and for an excellent reason. All workers must have this basic training.
On your course, you will learn about how to identify hazards, how to stay safe, what safety gear you should wear, what to do in an emergency situation, and basic first aid in case anything does go wrong.
