This short course is the initial five-day training course approved by the regulator that Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs) are entitled to under the Work Health and Safety Act 2012.
This course is suitable for workers, managers, supervisors and officers who want to contribute to healthy, safe and productive workplaces, and prevent illness and injury.
Over five days, you’ll gain practical understanding and experience in applying legislation to solve problems, using the risk management process and hierarchy of control, and how to prevent and investigate incidents.
You’ll also have the opportunity to develop skills in assisting duty holders with their rights and responsibilities, health and safety committees, and understanding the role of union entry permit holders and the regulator.
Our highly experienced teachers will lead you through practical group activities, role plays and scenarios where you will learn about the benefits of consulting, communicating and conflict resolution to foster continual WHS improvement, and how to effectively contribute to health and safety committees, WHS procedures and management systems.
Successful completion of this course will enable you to assist with WHS compliance, foster an environment of consultation and improve systems, culture and performance in your workplace.
