Workplace Standards Tasmania Website States:
A person holding a current and valid general construction induction card from another jurisdiction will not need to do general induction training for construction work in Tasmania and will not need to obtain a Tasmanian white card. WorkSafe Tasmania will deem these cards as equivalent to the Tasmanian construction induction scheme and accept them as proof of general induction in Tasmania.
The recognition of white, blue, red and construction induction cards only applies to general induction training (classroom based) for construction work. Principal contractors and employers must ensure that task induction and site–specific induction training is undertaken.

Once you have been issued with a General Construction Induction Card, the card is automatically recognised for construction work in any state or territory of Australia. It is important to note that each state and territory may differ in the requirements to have your General Construction Induction Card available for inspection. You should review the relevant legislation to the state or territory you wish to work in, prior to commencing work.

OVERVIEW AND CONTEXT of National White Card acceptance:
To be able to carry out construction work, a person must complete an introductory safety training course called ‘general construction induction training’. This is also commonly known as ‘white card’ training.
Under the model WHS Act, a PCBU must make sure every worker has completed white card training, including those who have completed training in the past but have not carried out construction work in the last two years. Once a person has completed that training they may apply to a WHS regulator for a white card.
A white card issued in one state or territory or by the Commonwealth is generally recognised Australia wide.
- For more information about white card training, cross-border recognition, applications and renewal of white cards, contact the WHS Regulator in your state or territory or the Commonwealth.
