Monitoring jobs ads every day as I do, you come to notice trends and changes as to which skills, tickets and licences are being most sought. One current basic requirement for individuals working in construction, whether in mining, oil and gas or civil construction, is the OHS Construction White Card. A significant number of people seeking work hold the Red Card, which, as I have checked with Work Safe, is still a valid card. Even though the Red Card is valid, I suggest to my clients that they update to the White Card, as what we are seeing is an increasing number of companies rejecting the Red Card. This is possibly due to the timeframe in which they were acquired which is now a long time ago in the world of 21st century work. Again, having checked with Work Safe, I have ascertained that if you present yourself with your Red Card, and photographic proof of identity, such as your Driver’s Licence to a Registered Training Organisation authorised to deliver the White Card qualification, for a small fee a new White Card may be issued by Work Safe if you are eligible (without the need to repeat the training).
