ASQA White card review

The long awaited review by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) into the unit of competency CPCCOHS1001A, commonly known as the White Card, was released on the 16th December 2013.

ASQA’s review into the effectiveness of the Construction White Card, a mandatory nationally recognised accreditation card for work safety induction training, makes six recommendations to help improve the safety of workers at construction sites.

Particular focus of many of these non-compliances was on the online mode of delivery.
