HSR refresher Work-Related Stress – 02 September
September 2, 2020 - 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$288
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This WorkSafe approved training course will help HSRs to understand and exercise their powers effectively. The training will provide HSRs with the confidence, skills and knowledge to represent their co-workers (i.e. DWG) when raising health and safety concerns in relation to work-related stress. Although HSRs / Deputy HSRs are the primary audience, managers, supervisors, health and safety committee members may also benefit from attending this course. It is an opportunity to revisit aspects of the HSR Initial OHS Training course and refresh your knowledge of the role of a HSR.
Under section 67 of the OHS Act 2004 an employer, if requested, must allow an elected HSR to attend a WorkSafe approved HSR Initial OHS Training Course on paid time, pay the cost of the course and any other associated costs.
Section 67 also allows HSRs to choose the approved training course in consultation with their employer.
When a HSR is first elected, it’s recommended that they undertake an initial training course as soon as possible. Deputy HSRs also have an entitlement to this training.
A HSR employer is also able to request evidence of HSR attendance.
This WorkSafe approved HSR Refresher OHS training course aims to provide HSRs with the skills and knowledge needed to raise and resolve, on behalf of their designated workgroup members, health and safety issues arising from incidents of work-related stress. The course will also assist HSRs’ and Deputy HSRs’ understanding of how they can effectively use their powers when participating in the identification, prevention and control of the risks associated with work-related stress. Mental health is a state of wellbeing that allows people to realise their potential while coping with the ordinary challenges of life. This training course covers the important subject area of work-related stress and factors which can impact mental health and safety. Work-related factors, also known as psychosocial hazards, are anything in the management or design of work that increases the risk of work-related stress, which can lead to physical injury, mental injury or even both at the same time.
