Standards and Performance Pathways (SPP) provide an update on the NDIS Worker Screening Check process and status.
The new nationally consistent Worker Screening Check will mean that all workers are screened consistently for the safety of participants, and that screened workers can work in any state/territory.
NDIS Worker Screening Units
From 1 July 2019, each state/territory (except for WA) will have its own NDIS Worker Screening Unit, which will be responsible for conducting worker screening checks.
Checks will be valid for up to five years, subject to ongoing monitoring by Worker Screening Units.
Who needs to be screened?
Workers who are in “risk assessed” roles will be required to apply for a Check to the Worker Screening Unit in their state/territory.
Until 1 July 2019, when the new NDIS Worker Screening Check arrangements are implemented, the existing screening requirements applicable to each state/territory continue to be in effect.
SPP will continue to keep you updated as more information becomes available.
