50 students completed the "Prepare to work safely in construction" training

This month our client, POSH, sponsored the Prepare To Work Safely In Construction training course (commonly known as the White Card) for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander students from the Clontarf Academy and Girls Academy.
 
The training aims to prepare the soon-to-graduate year twelve students in the following construction work areas:
  • Legislative safety requirements
  • Hazard and risk identification methods
  • Communication and reporting processes
  • Emergency response 
  • PPE
A total of 50 students attended the course. To accommodate the large number of students undertaking the course, training was conducted in five dedicated face-to-face sessions at the Skills Training & Engineering Services (STES) training facility in Perth. STES also provided a discounted rate for the training which allowed the large volume of students to complete the course. 
POSH and Atlas Professionals are committed to ensuring Australian Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander men and women are given opportunities to work within the marine, drilling & construction industries.  
Atlas Professionals & the academies would like to thank our client, POSH for their tremendous support in funding this initiative.
