Federal Safety Commissioner (FSC) Accreditation

The Federal Safety Commissioner (FSC)  is dealing  with various  industries and governments to achieve the highest  workplace health and safety standards on Australian building and construction projects.

Do you need to be accredited?

Subject to financial thresholds for indirect and direct funding, only builders who are accredited under the Australian Government Building and Construction WHS Accreditation Scheme (the Scheme) can enter into head contracts for building work that is funded directly or indirectly by the Australian Government. Any project for building work that includes funding from the Australian Government has the potential to require an accredited builder.
