Aim: The latest version of the course aims to provide 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 new course is interactive, activity based and uses the latest video clips from WorkSafe Victoria.
The vision at WorkSafe Victoria is to see Victorian workers 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. Section 67 also allows HSRs to choose the approved training course they attend in consultation with their employer.

If you have any questions regarding these changes please call us on 1800 429 266.
