What is a health and safety representative (HSR)? A representative looks out for the safety of those in his work group. When requested, employers must provide HSRs with the necessary occupational health and safety (OHS) training. This course can only be used for refresher purposes and an initial HSR courses must be done face to face by an approved provider of Victorian HSR.
HSR training courses provide representatives with the skills and knowledge needed to help make the workplace safer. These representatives become advocates for other workers, looking out for their safety and ensuring that the organisation complies with OHS laws and regulations.
If you are an elected HSR or an employer, you should understand the role of the HSR and what training is needed.
