Building and Construction White Card course
Year 10, 11 and 12 students of Kilcoy State High School attended the “Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry” course held by BlueDog Training.
The course was completed in one day on site at Kilcoy High School.
This course was initially planned to be delivered face to face, however, due to current Covid restrictions the course was delivered via Zoom to 15 participating students.
The White Card is a health and safety induction that is required for all persons accessing building sites.
This is a national initiative that has been in place for a number of years to try to improve safety on construction sites.
For some students, this is a requirement of their work experience host employer due to the nature of the industry; other students have opted to do the course in preparation for future employment.
