Workplace Health and Safety Representative Training

This course is designed for Work Health and Safety Representatives and has been updated to reflect new legislation and the WHS Act and Regulations 2011.

Health and safety representatives (HSRs) need relevant knowledge and skills to allow them to exercise their powers to promote and ensure the health and safety of members of their work-groups.

Under the WHS Regulations and outlined in section 72 of the WHS Act they are entitled to attend a training course in work health and safety that is approved by the regulator – Safework NSW.

Health and Safety Representatives play an important role in representing the health and safety interests of workers in a work group. The role of the HSR is to facilitate the flow of information about workplace health and safety between employers and workers.

This course equips participants with the essential skills for effectively dealing with occupational health and safety issues in the workplace.
