    hi guys just a question for the electricians on here, i've just heard about something called a workcover white card for aussie building sites. i'm assuming this is similar to a the uk's ECS card? just wandering how easy it is to get this? and is it pretty essential to have this to work? thanks :huh:

    You just have a one day course on work safety etc and then you get it, not sure what it costs because my husbands employers sorted it out for him.

    Not anything to do with Workcover its supposed to be a construction industry induction. Basically all you do is sit for 6 hours listening to a guy talk then if u have stayed awake u end up with a white card. Its changed to a white card with is nationally recognised from a Green card (in SA) In principal a good idea but reality is its just another way of getting money out of you or company.

    Take a look at Master Builders Assoc web site for information and costs
