Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs) are entitled to attend a 1-day refresher course each year during their term of office to gain a revision of the key elements covered in their 5-day Health & Safety Representative (HSR) training.
HSR's can add value to your safety program and assist your company with compliance with WHS laws and, more importantly, assist in injury prevention. It is essential to ensure that your HSR’s are up-skilled and understand the functions and powers of their role. The Refresher program is a good way to support your HSRs and keep them engaged.
The course content varies between states.
