The City of Canning’s new WHS General Contractor Induction is now Live.
Recognising that the City of Canning has a lot of information that can be valuable in ensuring that all workplaces are safe, we’ve designed a new Contractor Induction to help us inform you of critical information to help provide a safe workplace.
From 1 September 2019 the new induction is mandatory for all contractors and their employees carrying out new works.
If you are a company representative or business owner, you must direct ALL of your employees who will be undertaking work on your behalf at the City of Canning to register and complete their individual inductions. Work may not be carried out until the registration process has been completed and employees or sole traders will not be allowed on site without a valid induction certificate. Please note, in accordance with Section 23D of the OSH Act, all subcontractors and their employees engaged by a Principal Contractor are considered employees also and must undergo the same induction.
There is no cost to complete the induction and there is no limit on how many employees may be inducted.
We recognise this is a big change and we want to work together with contractors to successfully implement the change.
To make the transition easier for everyone we are going to use a staggered approach to implementation which includes:
Steps to complete the induction:
1. Company registration
A company representative must register your company. Click here
Once your company is registered, you and your employees will need to register to complete your individual safety inductions.
- Sole traders/suppliers will need to both register their company and register as an employee and complete the induction.
- The same email address can’t be used to register a company and then used by an employee to register for induction. It must be a different email address.
2. Individual inductions
Nominated individuals will then need to head here
and upload their tickets or licenses and then complete the induction.
Induction cards will be printed periodically and your company will be notified when they can be collected from the Depot at 47 Fleming Avenue in Cannington.
Once an individual has registered, they will be able to log in as required.
- When company or individual licenses, certificates or tickets are uploaded to the portal, please input the expiry dates and correct contact information in, as the system will automatically let you know when expiry dates are approaching. This makes it easier for you and your employees to keep everything current.
