The Construction Safety Licensing Bill 2023, published on the 24th of March, is set to reform and modernise the construction industry, embedding safety skills into worker development and making the industry more appealing to future workers. This critical legislation will revolutionise safety practices and establish a new licensing authority, replacing lifetime qualification certificates with renewable licenses.
The Construction Safety Licensing Bill 2023: A New Era of Safety and Skills Recognition
The Bill presents an opportunity for workers possessing relevant construction skills, even if they are not qualified apprentices or professionals.
These individuals will now be able to obtain a license that recognises their skills specific to their site activities.
One of the most transformative elements of this legislation is the formation of a new licensing authority. This body will manage a register of licensees and act as the competent authority to recognise qualifications obtained from outside the state.
The licensing model replaces the traditional training model, where once a worker is certified, it’s for life. Now, workers must hold a licence and periodically renew it to ensure their skills and training remain current.
