Construction Safety Cards
If you are going to work on ANY construction site you will need to obtain a Construction General Induction Competency certificate.
This is a legal requirement and affects Builders, Bricklayers, Electricians etc.
Principal Contractors are NOT allowed to employ anyone on site if they do not hold such a card. Workers can also be fined if found working without them.
