Duration: 5 days

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Interpreting the OHS legislative framework and its relationship to the HSR;
  • Identifying key parties and their legislative obligations and duties;
  • Establishing representation in the workplace;
  • 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. If you have any questions please call us on 1800 429 266.

The course is interactive, activity based and uses 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.

Please note:

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.
