1 FCT SHEET RECOGNITION OF CONSTRUCTION INDUCTION CRDS Under the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation 2001, Workcover NSW recognises all interstate construction induction cards issued under the National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work (the National Code) as well as Western ustralian blue cards, Queensland blue cards and Victorian red cards issued under the previous arrangements. Western ustralian blue cards are only regarded as valid for three years from the date of issue. Blue cards older than this will not be recognised in NSW. Cards from any jurisdiction will only be regarded as valid provided the holder has not been out of the industry for more than two years. In addition, any construction induction cards issued under current or former arrangements will only be recognised in NSW if they continue to be recognised in the issuing jurisdiction. This reform enhances the capacity of construction workers to move across state and territory boundaries and is the latest initiative of a larger program to harmonise work health and safety systems between the jurisdictions. Construction workers with valid versions of these cards are not required to undertake general construction induction training in NSW and are not required to obtain a WorkCover NSW construction induction card. WorkCover inspectors will regard these state cards as evidence of meeting the requirements for general construction induction training under clause 216 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation 2001 (as amended 1 September 2009). These interstate cards must be produced if requested by a NSW inspector. n inspector may also request a sample of the person s usual signature. If a person carrying out work in the NSW construction industry claims to be in possession of one of the interstate cards and cannot immediately produce it, an inspector may consider issuing an improvement or penalty notice to the person in control of the site or the construction work. RECOGNITION PRINCIPLES The recognition of interstate construction induction cards in NSW only applies to general construction induction training. Principal contractors and employers must ensure that site induction and task specific training is undertaken as required by the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation 2001, the National Code and any other obligations imposed by the OHS and workers compensation legislation. Under the recognition principles a person can only claim to have their general construction induction training qualification mutually recognised where they have successfully complied with the general safety induction requirements for the state in which they ordinarily reside. By way of example: person ordinarily a resident in NSW should undertake and complete general construction induction training as required and regulated by WorkCover NSW. Registered Training Organisation (RTO) approved by WorkCover NSW must deliver the provision of any such training. person ordinarily a resident in NSW should not complete training in any other state instead of NSW training or in lieu of NSW training.

2 ny person, or organisation seeking to deliver general construction induction training to the residents of each state, must be approved to deliver training in the state in which the training is to be delivered. n interstate RTO should not deliver nor advertise to deliver that jurisdictions general construction induction training to persons ordinarily resident in NSW as equivalent to or in lieu of NSW training.
