Who Can Attend HSR and
Committee Courses?

Who can attend the 5 Day SafeWork NSW HSR Course?
Workers who have been elected by their workgroup as a Health & Safety Representative are entitled to attend this course and obtain a SafeWork NSW certificate for it. On completion of the course they are entitled to exercise the power of issuing a provisional improvement notice or directing that unsafe work cease.

Managers, Supervisors and others can attend this course. They will gain an understanding of mandatory consultation requirements in their workplace, their role in the mandatory consultation process and the role, powers and limitations of HSRs. These attendees will receive a SafeWork NSW course certificate on completion of the course but because they are not HSRs they do not have the powers of a HSR.

Who can attend the 1 day SafeWork NSW HSR Refresher course?
HSRs are entitled to do the Refresher course. They must provide evidence that they have completed the 5 day SafeWork NSW HSR course and will receive a SafeWork NSW course certificate. For more information about HSR training details go to our website

Managers, Supervisors and others can attend this course and receive a Statement of Attendance on completing it.

Who can attend a Health & Safety Committee Course?
Worker Representatives and HSRs on the Committee, Managers, and Supervisors can definitely attend. Should it be a public course or a course delivered at your workplace? That will be dependent upon the needs of your workplace and if necessary we are happy to tailor a course to your exact needs.
