  • Elements of the OHS legislative framework;
  • Designated Work Groups;
  • The value of being an HSR;
  • HSR powers;
  • Experiences as an HSR;
  • Explaining the term 'reasonably practicable';
  • Issue resolution;
  • Risk management overview;
  • Types of workplace hazards including psychosocial hazards;
  • Determining risk levels and controls;
  • Employer/employee duty of care;
  • The importance of consultation and reporting;
  • Incident management and investigation;
  • Latest developments and initiatives in OHS; and
  • WorkSafe guidance material and website.

Target Audience: Anyone who has completed the WorkSafe Victoria Approved Health & Safety Representative Initial OHS Training Course.

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 the OHS Act 2004 (section 67), all elected HSRs and deputy HSRs, after completing an initial course of training, have an entitlement for each year they hold office to attend a WorkSafe-approved HSR refresher OHS training course. An employer, if requested, must allow the HSR/Deputy HSR to attend on paid time, pay the cost of the course and any other associated costs. Section 67 also allows HSRs to choose the course, in consultation with their employer.
