Aim: HAZCON is delighted to have been working with WorkSafe to roll out the approved HSR Initial OHS Training Course as of 1st November 2016. Version 2.0 of the 5 Day initial course provides HSRs and Deputy HSRs with the information and skills required to successfully exercise their powers under OHS legislation. The course also informs managers, supervisors, Health and Safety Committee members and other employees interested in OHS.
The revamped course follows the CSAR instructional design model. CSAR is an acronym for the four key learner states which are:
The new course is interactive, activity based and uses the latest video clips from WorkSafe Victoria.
The vision at WorkSafe Victoria is to see Victorian workders returning home safe every day. WorkSafe regard Health and Safety Representative's (HSR's), together with employers, managers, supervisors and employees as making a vital contribution to making this happen.
Under Section 67 of the OHS Act 2004 all HSRs and Deputy HSRs are entitled to attend a 'WorkSafe Victoria Approved Initial OHS Training Course' after being elected. The employer is obliged to allow the HSR time off work with pay to attend this course and must pay the costs associated with the HSR attendance.

Course titles have changed due to WorkSafe's revision of current learning outcomes, however the content of all the HSR training courses still reference the OHS Act 2004 and cover the obligations of key duty holders, HSR powers and entitlements, hazard identification and controls, consultation, issue resolution and PINS/Direction to cease work. If you have any questions regarding these changes please call us on 1800 429 266.
