Lost White Card? Here’s What To Do

"As of the 15th of August there will be changes to the Queensland White Card requirements around Evidence of Identity. To meet these requirements you will now need to supply 3 forms of Identification that have been certified as true copies of the original by a Justice of the Peace or someone similar. We are implementing these changes from the 12th of August to ensure compliance with the new requirements."

If you have done a White Card Course and you held a QLD White Card:

If you have NOT ever done a White Card Course and you DO NOT own a White Card:

If you’ve lost your QLD Construction White Card and you’re wondering what to do, this page outlines the steps to take to quickly get a replacement QLD White Card mailed out to you. If your QLD White Card has been lost, stolen or destroyed we are able to replace it for you *.
 
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). Click here for more information about completing white card training.
 
The process involved is not complicated but does involve you providing us with a copy of your statement of attainment and signing a Declaration explaining why/how it got lost, stolen or destroyed.
 

Then we can post out a replacement White Card within 1 to 2 business days (usually 1) for just $27.50, and we also offer Express Delivery (using Express Post) for extra $9.00 (incl GST).

Here’s What You Need To Replace Your Lost QLD White Card:

First, you must have successfully completed one of the following construction safety induction units with a properly registered RTO at some point in the past.

You need to send us a copy of your statement of attainment from when you successfully completed one of the following courses 1:

  • CPCCWHS1001: Prepare to work safely in the construction industry (White Card) (Issued from December 2016 onwards)2
  • CPCCOHS1001A: Work safely in the construction industry (issued between July 2009 and December 2017)2

Then, you will need to complete a Declaration (we supply this for you) which outlines how your card was lost, stolen or destroyed. This Declaration then needs to be submitted to us.

You can do this through the online account created for you when you register.

Next, submit certified³ copies of your identity (ID).
The evidence of identity (EOI) documents must comprise either:

  • One (1) Category A document and two (2) Category B documents, or
  • Two (2) Category A documents and one (1) Category B document.
