Online | WorkSafe Approved HSR Initial 5-Day Training | 15, 16, & 24, 25, 26 November 2021

November 15 - 9:00 am - November 26 - 5:00 pm


This fully online WorkSafe approved course will equip participants with the knowledge and practical skills to deal effectively with OHS issues within the workplace.

Over the five days, HSRs and Deputy HSRs will be equipped with the skills, knowledge and confidence to represent their designated workgroup and help make their workplace safer.

Further, this 5-day course will equip participants to:

  • Interpret the occupational health and safety legislative framework and its relation to the HSR
  • Identify key parties and their legislative obligations and duties
  • Establish representation in the workplace
  • Participate in consultation and issue resolution
  • Represent designated work group members in any OHS risk management process undertaken by the appropriate duty holder/s
  • Issue a Provisional Improvement Notice (PIN) and direct the cessation of work



This course is suited to newly elected HSRs and deputy HSRs and those wanting to refresh their knowledge of the 5-day course.  Managers, supervisors,  health and safety committee members and anyone interested in health and safety may also benefit from attending this course.

Under section 67 of the Victorian OHS Act 2004, an employer, if requested, must allow an elected HSR and elected Deputy HSR to attend a WorkSafe-approved HSR initial OHS training course on paid time, pay the course fees and any other associated costs. Section 67 also allows HSRs to choose the approved course they attend in consultation with their employer.

An HSR’s employer is also able to request evidence of HSR attendance.
