Course outline

This five-day program provides newly-elected Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs) with the skills and confidence to identify and resolve workplace health and safety (WHS) issues.

HSRs play an important role in organisations, advising colleagues about health and safety matters within the workplace and ensuring that safety standards are met.

By representing workers in their group, HSRs provide an avenue for workers to raise safety issues within their workplace, ensuring that a process is followed to resolve any hazards or risks.

Topics covered

  • Gain the powers to issue provisional improvement notices and direct that unsafe work ceases
  • Understand the context, objectives and principles of WHS legislation
  • Identify the duties and responsibilities of officers, workers and other parties
  • Outline the purpose and formation of a work group (or work groups) within the workplace
  • Understand the election process, rights and protections of an appointed HSR
  • Identify a range of strategies that support the consultation process
  • Understand how HSRs can contribute to the management of risk in the workplace

Who is this course for?
