Replacement of Red Card or transfer to the Construction Induction Card (White Card)
A Victorian Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) ‘Red Card’ that was issued before 1 July 2008 are still valid proof of construction induction training; however, employers may suggest that employees undertake refresher training.
If you hold a 'Red Card', you may be able to apply for a nationally recognised Construction Induction Card (‘White Card’) through a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
In order to be eligible for a transition, you must be able to provide:
- Original Red Card in legible condition
- Current photo identification (e.g. Driver’s Licence or Passport)
- Proof of current postal address
- Payment of a nominal fee (as determined by the RTO)
If you do not have a suitable Red Card or the Statement of Attainment issued by the RTO who provided the training, you will need to complete construction induction training to obtain a White Card.
