Tamworth Community College

Health & Safety Representative (HSR)

Health & Safety Representatives (HSRs) are entitled to choose and attend, in consultation with the business or employer (or other PCBU), a SafeWork approved 5-day training course in work health and safety and a one-day refresher course each year during their term of office.

In this course, you will cover the requirements of WHS legislation, including WHS framework, consultation, representation and participation. As well as the role of the HSR in issue resolution and minimising risk, including inspections, incident notification and investigation, provisional improvement notices (PINs) and ceasing unsafe work.

Students will receive a SafeWork NSW statement of training on the last day.

SafeWork NSW recommends completing a Refresher course every 12 months to maintain currency.
