Course Code: 25G01827

Course Description

This Worksafe approved training course will help HSRs to understand and exercise their powers effectively.  The training will provide HSRs with the confidence, skills and knowledge to represent their co-workers (i.e. DWG) when raising health and safety concerns in relation to work related violence.  Although HSRs and Deputy HSRs are the primary audience, managers, supervisors and health and safety committee members may also benefit from attending this course.

This refresher training will revisit the learning objectives of the HSR OHS Initial training course: 

  • Interpreting the OHS legislative framework and its relationship to the HSR
  • Identifying key parties and their legislative obligations and duties
  • Establishing representation in the workplace
  • Participating in consultation and issue resolution
  • Represent designated work group members in any OHS risk management process undertaken by the appropriate duty holder/s
  • Issuing a Provisional Notice (PIN) and Directing the Cessation of Work.

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 refresher training and choose the course in consultation with their employer.  The Gordon is approved to deliver three HSR refresher training courses.

A Certificate of Attendance is issued within ten days of completion of the course.
