HRD Red Card to White Card Update Service

Red Card looking a bit worn, faded or tired? Update your Red Card to a White Card update today.

HRD Integrated Services offers Victorian ‘Red Card’ holders a way to update to the Construction Industry ‘White Card’. The HRD Red Card change-over service is a straightforward way of obtaining the current White Card in a few easy steps.

Stay current with a Red Card transfer

A Red Card is still valid evidence of OHS/WHS training. It should continue to be accepted by employers. But you can choose to update your old card – just provide either your Red Card number or a Statement of Attainment (with a number) to confirm that you completed the training in the past.

You’ll also need to provide personal identification (typically a driver’s licence).

HRD’s Red Card to White Card update is WorkSafe-recognised

The HRD Red Card to White Card update process conforms to WorkSafe Victoria requirements. The White Card is issued by WorkSafe once the conditions of issue are met. (Allow up to 3 weeks to receive your card.)

The Red Card transfer service is only available to personnel who hold a Victorian Red Card. If you’re new to construction you might need to enrol in a Construction Induction (White Card) Course.
