Health and safety representatives (HSRs) are workers elected or selected for the role, who represent the health and safety interests of workers within their workgroup for a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) and provide the means to give workers a voice in health and safety matters at the workplace and involve workers through participation and consultation.

Roles and duties that may be performed for the elected work group:

  • Undertake workplace inspections
  • Review the circumstances of workplace incidents
  • Accompany a WHSQ inspector during an inspection
  • Represent the work group in health and safety matters
  • Attend an interview about health and safety matters with a worker from the work group (with the consent of the worker)
  • Request that a health and safety committee be established
  • Participate in a health and safety committee
  • Monitor compliance measures
  • Investigate work health and safety complaints from work group members
  • Inquire into any risk to the health and safety of workers in the work group
  • Issue provisional improvement notices and direct a worker to cease unsafe work (where the HSR has completed the approved training)

The HSR refresher course has been designed specifically to renew the skills and knowledge that HSR representatives have attained during their initial five (5) day HSR training course. As Work Health and Safety approved providers, ensuring our students are being trained with the most up-to-date and efficient information. The entitlement to HSR refresher training begins three years after the initial training. Further information from WHSQ can be found here.

Renewal: Three (3) years (as per Work Health and Safety Act 2011)
