The Whitecard Game

CHALLENGE

Making learning about OH&S engaging

Pre-apprentices have often never been on the worksite, and were being taught occupational health and safety in a day long powerpoint session.

Victoria University School of Construction needed to come up with a way of learning about OH&S principles and hazards that would be engaging to this young audience.

SOLUTION

The White Card Game offers an engaging and entertaining way to deliver training in CPCCOHS1001A – Work safely in the construction industry.

Through a first person perspective the goal of the game is to identify, control and report workplace hazards on a construction site without getting injured or causing the death of workmates.

By creating a virtual experience of being on a building site, the game offers real life challenges, problems and risks yet provides a safe place in which to learn and explore.

The project is a collaboration between Victoria University and Oztron, and is funded by the National VET E-Learning Strategy.
