Online White Cards no longer available in Queensland

White Card training

Concerned about the quality of online training, Workplace Health and Safety Queensland has advised that all induction training needs to be delivered face-to-face by a registered training organisation (RTO) from 2019.

For residents of QLD, NSW, ACT, VIC, SA & NT online White Card courses will no longer be available. To complete an induction course and receive a White Card, courses will need to be attended in your respective State.

Elevated Training Courses Support Female Equality in the Workforce

construction training

The Australian Government recently released a report on Gender Pay Gap Statistics which highlighted the difference in pay for male and female roles in construction. It was revealed that over a period of a year, from November 2016 to November 2017, women earned 20.2% less than their male counterparts.

Factors Influencing the Gender Pay Gap

The report incorporated findings from both the public and private sectors and identified the pay gap was influenced by several factors including:
• There was a definite bias and discrimination with hiring and salaries between men and women
• With women and men working in different industries, the more female-dominated industries received lower wages
• Women were given a higher share of domestic and unpaid work
• For women who had more time away from the workplace, career progression and opportunities were more limited.

Elevated Training Supports Women Achieving Equal Rights and Pay

Elevated Training is dedicated to empowering women in construction and related industries receive the training they need to reach their full potential and be rewarded with equal rights and pay to their male counterparts. All courses are tailored to equally accommodate the training needs of both men and women in these industries, with Saturday training available for women who can’t attend training Monday to Friday due to work or personal commitments.

The registered training organisation (RTO) has both male and female trainers running their courses who are industry experienced and understand every student has different learning needs, with some requiring more one-on-one training. All trainers believe in gender equality and providing a supportive, non-discriminatory learning environment where women will feel comfortable learning at their own pace.

Importance of Safety Construction Licenses

working safely at heights

If you consider the Federal Government statistics for 2018, that there have already been 10 worker deaths in construction year-to date, you can understand the importance of being trained and licensed in construction if you are considering a career in this field. Common safety training courses that employers in construction expect when assessing prospective employees for hiring to work onsite include: Working Safely at Heights and Enter and Work in Confined Space Training.

Construction industry one of Australia’s most dangerous sectors

The construction industry in Australia continues to be one of its biggest employers, offering a vast range of work opportunities, but the downside to this industry is it’s also recognised as one of the most dangerous. As workers are around heavy machinery on a regular basis, as well as in and around trenches, crawl spaces and drainage pipes or up on scaffolding, it’s no wonder that this sectors fatality rate is close to double the national average, sitting third highest in Safe Work Australia’s national statistics.

What’s involved with working safely at heights and confined space training?

Both of these safety construction licenses are intensive but only run for a duration of one day, so even if you are working or have a busy lifestyle you should be able to fit these into your schedule. The Enter and Worked in Confined Spaces training teaches you everything you need to know to plan, enter and work safely in confined spaces, as well as how to exit the space, leaving the area tidy to avoid accidents. With Working Safely at Heights Training you are trained on identifying all work requirements and procedures, accessing and installing equipment and performing work safely at heights, along with tips on cleaning up the area once your work is completed.

If you’re wanting to work in construction you can organise to do your Working Safely at Heights and Enter and Work in Confined Space Training through Elevated Training, a nationally recognised training provider. Find out more by contacting Elevated Training today on (07) 55 245 925.

What to expect in a career as a forklift driver


Once you get your forklift license there will be numerous opportunities for you to find work, particularly in factories and warehouses. To give you further insight into what to expect from a career as a forklift driver, we’ve provided some valuable background information on some of the generally duties forklift drivers do.

General duties of a forklift driver

If you’re a forklift driver in a factory or warehouse, you will normally be responsible for receiving all inbound stock, as well as packing it away. Other tasks that normally fall under this role are picking and packing of orders for customers. In order to keep the warehouse or factory’s inventory correct, you will also have to enter the delivery slips and the invoices into the computer. For safety and general housekeeping, forklift drivers are often expected to do some basic cleaning duties around the warehouse or factory too.

Inventory management using a radio frequency scanner

Part of inventory management as a forklift driver involves using a radio frequency scanner to scan items on pallets. Generally, when goods are received you will scan each barcode to enter the goods into the computer system and check to see if the goods received match the order that has been dispatched to you from the supplier. Often, locations in the warehouse are also allocated a barcode so you can match where the items you are scanning in are meant to be stored, streamlining the process to make it quicker and easier.

These are some of the main duties you will normally expect from a career as a forklift driver. If this interests you, contact Elevated Training today to complete forklift driver training and receive your forklift license.


Benefits of having an EWP Licence

ewp licence

As it’s getting harder and harder for those interested in breaking into construction to find work in this industry, securing an elevated work platform (EWP) licence can often be the point of difference for job seekers wanting to secure a role over the competition.

Why an EWP license is so valuable in construction

Elevated work platforms are very common on construction sites to support equipment, materials and workers when working at heights. Depending on the construction project, these can range from self-propelled scissor lifts and boom lifts through to truck or trailer mounted EWPs.

It’s critical for the safety of everyone onsite for elevated work platforms to be operated by someone who is fully licensed, so they have the knowledge and experience to safely navigate different terrains and conditions, such as limited access areas.

Avoid accidents onsite with EWP training and licensing

Deaths in construction have been recorded from improper operation of EWP platforms, commonly believed to have resulted from a lack of training. By undergoing EWP training and licensing through a nationally recognised training provider like Elevated Training, it can help stop further tragedies occurring on construction sites.

What’s involved with EWP training and licensing

EWP training and licensing teaches individuals how to safely operate electrical, hydraulic and mechanical elevated work platforms in a range of environments and conditions. The training includes supporting personnel, equipment and materials while operating EWPs, so individuals become competent in a broad scope of situations. From relocation and set-up through to onsite operations and shutting down of equipment, EWP training and licensing is very comprehensive.
