NSW/ACT Cross Border Breakfast
April 2018

Over 150 people attended the ACT and NSW WorkSafe Cross Border Breakfast. It was extremely pleasing to see Ms Rachel Stephen-Smith – Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations attend and formally launch the National Safe Work Month. The Minister also recognised the common theme and objectives between both jurisdictions in this cross-border initiative. The importance of this industry breakfast was demonstrated by not only the Minster Ms Rachel Stephen-Smith MLA attending, but also Mr Andrew Wall MLA, shadow Minister for Industrial Relations, showing interest in this important industry breakfast. Over 150 industry representatives were provided with a number of diverse presentations and updates on Cross Border activities. Additionally, guests heard a number of excellent presentations on the impact on mental health in the industry as well as young workers in construction and falls from heights.
Clayton Baldwin informed guests that NSW has introduced a new register of high risk work, asbestos and demolition licence holders, and general construction induction training card holders is now available online. The register does not include holders of explosives and firework licences.
The register makes it easier for businesses to check the validity of a worker’s licence or training card via a single portal. The register will be published in two phases.
Phase 1 includes publication of the licence/card holder’s name, licence number and type, licence status, and the licence expiry date (if any). Phase 2 – anticipated to occur in May 2018 – will include publication of licence conditions, and penalty and prosecution actions.
A person can request to have their information suppressed by demonstrating that its publication would be unfairly prejudicial or impact their personal safety or well-being.                                         Link to Page: Check a licence – SafeWork NSW
