Working in Construction

White Card (Mandatory)

All construction workers in Australia must hold a valid ‘Prepare to work safely in the construction industry’ Card (CPCCWHS1001) – commonly referred to as a White Card. This applies to all levels of construction workers.

High Risk Licence (Dependent on Role & Site Requirements)

Many construction sites require the use of high-risk equipment like Cranes, Scaffolds and Forklifts. Staff that operate this type of equipment or who have a supporting role require a High Risk Licence. This licence is nationally recognised and should be maintained in line with project and site requirements. Unique modules of training are completed for specific duties on site.

Electrical Licence – Valid for Applicable State

Electricians must hold a current electrical licence in the State that they are working in. There are different levels of licensing which is dependent on the type of work that is being carried. Electricians who are performing installation work must hold an unrestricted licence.

For more information on licencing arrangements and requirements in Australia please refer to the State and Territory government website of the state you are planning to work in.

Working in Minerals and Mining

Australia is home to some of the world’s largest mineral mine sites in the world and is the leading producer of Iron Ore and the fourth largest producer of black coal throughout the world. Personnel who access and work on mining sites hold a range of tickets, licences and first aid certificates. The nature of the work on these mine sites can be extremely high risk. Some additional training may be required as below:

First Aid Training

Given the high risk and volatile nature of mine sites, it is highly recommended that all staff and contractors hold a first aid training certificate. This provides the skills and knowledge for individuals to apply first aid in response to a range of situations that might occur within the workplace and community.

Drivers Licence

A valid driver’s licence is a common requirement for mining projects and sites in Australia so that you can readily move around the work site.

4WD Training

In some instances, staff are required to travel large distances often in heavily isolated environments and rough terrain. 4WD training is a requirement for some of these projects and sites.

Working in Maintenance

Maintenance and shutdown work in is commonly required within all industries, particularly the power and utilities industry. The term ‘Shutdown’ is defined as the scheduled maintenance period and applies to steam turbines, coal handling plants and other assets.

Shutdown work will attract a need for different trades and labour including mechanical, electrical and instrumentation. The following tickets are common for this type of work:

Confined Space Entry

Maintenance workers are often required to enter and work in confined spaces. These spaces are largely high risk due to hazardous substances and conditions such as leaking gas in the atmosphere and lack of oxygen.

Individuals who work in this environment will be required to hold a valid confined space entry licence which provides them with the set of skills and knowledge to perform their role safely.

Gas Test Atmosphere

This training prepares individuals with the knowledge and skill set to test gas levels in the atmosphere in order to determine if a designated area or site is safe to undergo work.

Working at Heights

Working at Heights is a high-risk activity and is required in many work sites across Australia – especially in maintenance and construction. A WAH ticket is a requirement for work performed above two metres.

Working Offshore

Offshore work requires workers to endure demanding and strict working environments. Weather conditions can be challenging, and staff are faced with isolation and hostile surroundings such as the open ocean. Fly in and fly out rosters vary according to project requirements but personnel should be prepared to work away from home for long periods of time – generally 10-12 hours per day.

In order to work offshore there are mandatory medical and safety pre-employment requirements in place in Australia. These include:

Offshore Medical (OGUK)

Strict offshore medical assessments are in place throughout Australia and often align with oil and gas UK standards. The medical is used to assess the overall health and level of fitness of individuals both physically and mentally to ensure they are safe to work in offshore and remote locations. Medical assessments are required prior to further offshore training.

BOSIET/ TBOSIET (Tropical) – Basic Offshore Induction & Emergency Training

BOSIET & TBOSIET (Tropical Waters) is a method of offshore induction and emergency safety training which prepares individuals for emergency landings, sea survival, fire-fighting and self-rescue.

HUET – Helicopter Underwater Escape Training

In most instances, helicopters are used as the method of transport to reach remote offshore locations in Australia. Often personnel are required to travel up to two or more hours to access the work site in the helicopter. Helicopter underwater escape training is a mandatory course which prepares personnel for emergency water-based landings.

MSIC – Maritime Security Induction Card

Most offshore oil and gas projects will require personnel at some point to undergo strict security background checks in order to be cleared fit for work in an unmonitored maritime security zone. This clearance is known as a maritime security induction card and is nationally recognised throughout Australia.
