NO CARD NO START
From 1 February 2021, Queensland commenced with the new disability worker screening system. The new screening check will determine whether a person is cleared or excluded from working in certain roles with people with disability. The paramount consideration is the right of people with disability to live their lives free from abuse, violence, neglect or exploitation. This system replaced the ‘yellow card’ and ‘yellow card exemption’ screening provisions.
If you are a disability worker delivering services or supports to both children and adults with disability, you will need both a disability worker screening clearance (NDIS or Queensland disability worker screening) as well as a blue card or exemption card. Workers who need both checks will be able to apply for both checks together. We call this a combined application.
Queensland has passed legislation to support a ‘no card, no start’ approach for disability worker screening. This means that people who are required to be screened must have a clearance before they can start work.
Please find below a link for the Disability Worker Screening website, which will give you further information on how to apply:
