Health and Safety Representative (HSR) Initial and Refresher Training

Health and Safety Representative Training Summary

The Health and Safety Representative (HSR) courses are aimed towards elected HSR's and deputy HSR's to provide them with the training required to fulfil their powers and functions, as well as meet the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 requirements, for the role of an HSR.

The course gives participants the skills and knowledge to identify safety issues or breaches in the workplace, and how to work with PCBU's (persons conducting a business or undertaking) to resolve these issues and ensure a safe working environment for all employees.

We provide both the initial 5-day course for newly elected HSR's, as well as the 1-day refresher course for those who are re-elected or currently elected and have completed the 5-day course previously.

HSR Initial (5-day) Course Costs $780 per person

HSR Refresher (1-day) Course Costs $330 per person
