The “New” EWPA Yellow Card Program was launched on July 1 2013. Feedback to the EWPA was that the industry wanted an improved outcome from the Yellow Card training. Research revealed that members and industry wanted more in-depth training with pathways to Statements of Attainment, more content, refresher training and a program that could react quickly to changes in industry, as well as more close alignment to the requirements of amended WHS/OHS Acts and Regulations introduced in 2011-2012. This moved the training from Duty of Care style delivery to Competency-Based training and assessment, photo cards were now issued with a 5 year expiry date which requires the holder to undergo online or face to face refresher training to ensure their skills and knowledge remain current.
