  • Participating in consultation and issue resolution;
  • Representing designated work group members in any OHS risk management process undertaken by the appropriate duty holder(s); and
  • Issuing Provisional Improvement Notice (PIN) and directing cessation of work.

All HSR training courses 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 Provisional Improvement Notices (PINS)/Direction to cease work.
