Construction work is happening all across WA, and builders need skilled workers who are ready to get on-site.
The Work Safety in Construction skill set will get you job ready for entry level roles in the construction field, such as trades assistant (TA) or general labourer. It covers how to follow mandatory work health and safety requirements in accordance with safety legislative requirements as well as infection control and prevention procedures to ensure you are working safely.
You will learn how to use a range of construction equipment and tools including levelling devices, skills to work in a construction team, and basic construction work applications for new and existing structures including residential homes, units and apartments.
This skill set is part of the Skills Ready program. Other skill sets can be found on our Course List (opens in a new tab) page.
