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 the new courses are being 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.
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.
To receive the SafeWork NSW certificate on this course HSRs must have completed the approved HSR five day initial training course. Participants must provide evidence of completing the prerequisite in the form of an original certificate.
NOTE. Participants attending an on line course can present a PDF copy of their original certificate.
Managers and Others
This course is beneficial for Managers so that they understand the duties and powers of the HSRs in their workplace and can work effectively with them in accordance with mandatory consultation arrangements. Persons attending this course for this purpose do not need to have completed the prerequisite training. These participants will receive a Courtenell Statement of Attendance.
