Changes to General Safety Induction (White Card)

From 1 February 2019 the following changes are being made to the General Safety Induction (White Card):

  • You'll no longer be able to get a White Card online unless you live more than 100km away from the nearest training provider offering face-to-face delivery
  • If you lose, destroy or have your Blue Card stolen you're no longer able to have it replaced with a White Card and you will need to re-sit the course
  • If you need to replace your White Card you must provide to the training provider a copy of the statement of attainment that you received with your white card. If you don't have the statement of attainment you will have to re-sit the course
  • If you hold a Construction Induction Card attained in another state and you need a replacement card, you'll either have to re-sit the course or seek a replacement from a registered training organisation in that state.

Need a new White Card? Don't worry, we've got you covered.

We have a walk-in service Monday-Friday at all nine Master Builders locations in Queensland including: Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Downs & Western, Wide Bay Burnett, Central Queensland, Mackay & Whitsunday, North Queensland and Far North Queensland. Please call our team on 1300 136 002 to pre-book and ensure you arrive before 10am on your booked course date.
