Health & Safety Representative Refresher Course SafeWork NSW

1 Day Course

Why Do This Course?
Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs) are entitled to annual refresher training on their initial HSR training as per the WHS Regulation 2017.
SafeWork NSW did a full review and revision of both the initial and refresher HSR courses at the end of 2022 and new courses have been delivered from 2023.
Even if your HSRs have had refresher training in the last few years, they may find the new 2023 HSR refresher course useful in their roles as HSRs and as worker representatives on a health and safety committee.
If you are an HSR and you request to attend the HSR Refresher course, your employer must provide the training. 
Course Aims

This course will:

  • refresh the information and skills attained in the initial five day HSR training course

  • assist HSRs to carry out their role and functions under the WHS legislation in their workplace.

Who Should Do the Course?

HSRs who have completed the initial training, or managers who would like to understand the role of their HSRs and gain an introduction to work health and safety.
