  • Establish representation in the workplace
  • Participate in consultation and issue resolution

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.

HSR initial OHS training course

  • Under section 67 of the Victorian Occupational Health and Safety Act (the 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 cost of the course and any other associated costs. Section 67 additionally allows HSRs to choose the course in consultation with their employer.
  • To exercise powers and rights as an HSR effectively, it is essential that HSRs and deputy HSRs receive training. This WorkSafe-approved training course aims to provide HSRs with the skills, knowledge and confidence to represent their designated work group and to help provide a safer workplace.

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