Worker Screening Unit

The Worker Screening Unit (WSU) within the Department of Child Safety, Seniors and Disability Services manages the application process for workers and volunteers seeking a clearance to deliver disability supports and services in Queensland. The WSU assesses applications to determine whether a person is cleared or excluded from working in certain roles with people with disability.

The primary consideration in screening decisions is the right of people with disability to live their lives free from abuse, violence, neglect or exploitation.  Disability worker screening plays an important role in creating safe environments and improving the quality of services and supports being delivered to people with disability.
