HSR Initial OHS Training Course

VEGSF03

To exercise powers and rights as an HSR effectively, it is essential that HSRs and deputy HSRs receive training. This WorkSafe-approved training course aims to provide HSRs with the skills, knowledge and confidence to represent their designated work group and to help make their workplace safer.

Section 67 also allows HSRs to choose the course in consultation with their employer.

We all know what it’s like…

Your business is going great (or not… COVID-19); you’re doing the things you know. But you also know that there are some pinch points in your business; some areas that could be safer, some processes you need to introduce.
But you’re frozen: I don’t know what to do? I don’t know where to start? Will the business afford it? Am I putting myself or business at risk?
