This course is often referred to as the NSW OHS Green Card Training course. There is no difference between the Green Card training or White Card training courses. This course is approved by Workcover NSW.
To obtain a job on a building or construction site in NSW it is a requirement that everyone holds a current Occupational Health & Safety Certificate, or “Construction White Card”. The white card is compulsory for each person as proof of completion of the "OHS General Induction for Construction Work" training. This course is often referred to as the NSW OHS Green Card Training course.
This white card training course satisfies the legal requirements for General OHS Construction Induction for construction workers in NSW. This white card training course is officially know as 'Work Safely in the Construction Industry' or 'CPCCOHS1001A'.
Permitting a person to commence work at a construction site without having completed the required white card induction training carries a maximum penalty of $3600 for an individual or $18000 for a body corporate. This training must be provided by the person Conducting a Business or undertaking. The penalty for not providing this training is $3600 for an individual or $18000 for a body corporate. (Clause 316 and Clause 317 of the NSW WHS Regulations 2011)

Workcover NSW Says: "In addition to the WorkCover NSW construction induction card, construction workers can work in NSW using valid construction induction cards issued by all states and territories under the National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work" Therefore these cards are valid in NSW.
