Blue card: No card. No Link. No Start.
“Linking” a card holder means that organisations will be notified of any important changes to a card holder’s status. These kind of changes include if an employee’s blue or exemption card is suspended or cancelled due to a change in police information.
Card holders and applicants are monitored daily by the Queensland Police Service and if there is a change in a person’s police information, Blue Card Services are notified and will assess their eligibility to continue to hold a blue card. If your organisation has not linked the person, BCS will not know to tell you if the card holder is no longer eligible work with in child-related employment. This puts the children in your service environment at risk, and puts your organisation at risk of referral to the Queensland Police Service for investigation.
