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.
