Easy Guides Australia have released a set of training materials to cover the new unit of competency CPCCOHS1001A ‘Work Safely in the Construction industry’. This unit is included within the CPC08 Construction Training Package, enabling delivery within the VET sector.

This includes principles of risk management and the prevention of injury and illness in the construction industry and is recommended for those whose employment causes them to routinely enter operational construction zones; those who carry out construction work, including site managers and supervisors, surveyors, labourers and trades persons; and hose who access operational construction zones unaccompanied or not directly supervised by an inducted person.
The National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work brings together best practice from Australian state and territory OHS authorities into a framework to promote a nationally uniform approach to OHS induction training in the building and construction industry.
