This WorkSafe approved OHS training course aims to provide Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs) with the skills, knowledge and confidence to represent their designated work group by providing workplace health and safety training to help make their workplace safer.
The training aims to give HSRs the basic knowledge and skills to exercise their powers and rights effectively as an HSR.
All HSRs and deputy HSRs (under the OHS Act 2004 - section 67) are entitled to undertake WorkSafe approved HSR OHS training for HSRs and choose their training course in consultation with their employer. If an elected HSR requests, their employer must allow them to attend a WorkSafe approved HSR OHS course and the employer must pay the cost of the course and other associated costs.
Although HSRs are the primary audience, managers and supervisors or anyone with an interest in workplace health and safety training may also benefit by attending this course.
