The Blue card for the construction industry has been replaced with the White Card.
The Blue card is still valid if you hold one and can be used Australia wide just like the White Card. Click here for more info.
However, if you lose your Queensland Blue Card you can’t get a new one, and due to recent changes implemented by Workplace Health & Safety Queensland, we can no longer replace a Blue Card* with a QLD white Card, so you’ll need to complete the new training course (CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry).
From February 2019, training for a QLD white card must be undertaken face to face in Queensland, however, we do offer online training which will result in you being issued with a WA white card, which is also accepted in all states and territories.
You can apply to get a replacement card in some circumstances, which will be a Queensland White Card which is accepted in all States and Territories. If you have previously been issued a White Card (that has been lost, stolen or destroyed) following completion of either CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry, or the previous QLD course CPCCOHS1001A Work safely in the construction industry, we may be able to issue a replacement, click here for more info and to apply for a replacement white card.
Do I need to replace my blue card?
If you still have a blue card, you do not need to change to a white card unless you are enrolled in a course of training that requires the completion of CPCCWHS1001 as a prerequisite (such as CPCCDE3014A Remove non-friable asbestos or CPCCDE3015A Remove friable asbestos).
*Replacement white cards can only be issued where a statement of attainment can be provided for either CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry, or the previous QLD course CPCCOHS1001A Work safely in the construction industry. The Blue Card was a predecessor to these courses and has never been issued for either of these units.
