Event description

Description

When a HSR is first elected, it's recommended that they undertake an initial five day HSR training course as soon as possible. Deputy HSRs also have an entitlement to this training.

This training is an entitlement under the Victorian Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (OHS Act) (section 67). On completion of the initial HSR training course participants should be able to:

  • understand the legal framework for OHS;
  • describe the roles and powers of the key workplace parties (not HSRs) in the OHS Act;
  • understand the representation role of HSRs and their legal powers and entitlements;
  • understand the role and representative powers of a HSR in the identification of hazards and risk controls at the workplace; and
  • use their skills to represent members of their designated work group (DWG) and participate in workplace consultation, issue resolution and negotiation.

Health and safety representatives (HSRs) play a vital role in making Victorian workplaces safer.

A safe workplace is more easily achieved when employers and heath and safety representatives regularly talk to each other about potential problems, and work together to find solutions.

HSRs are employees who are elected by the members of their Designated Work Group (DWG) to represent them, providing a way for their views and concerns about health and safety to be heard by their employer. All elected HSRs are entitled to undertake WorkSafe approved HSR training.
