Learn about the role of HSRs and deputy HSR

Under the OHS Act 2004 (section 67), all elected HSRs and deputy HSRs are entitled to undertake WorkSafe Victoria-approved HSR Initial OHS Training Course and HSR Refresher OHS training Course and choose their course in consultation with their employer.

This WorkSafe-approved training course will help HSRs to understand and exercise their powers effectively.

The training will provide HSRs with the confidence, skills, and knowledge to represent their designated work group when raising health and safety concerns in relation to work-related stress. Although HSRs/Deputy HSRs are the primary audience, managers, supervisors, health, and safety committee members may also benefit from attending this course.

HSRs are in a position where they can act on behalf of employees in their designated work group to raise issues that are identified. To do this they require a level of understanding of the subject matter.

This training steps through information on work-related stress to assist in providing that level of understanding to enable the HSR to identify work-related factors that are impacting mental health and safety. With this knowledge, they are able to liaise with their designated work group and management to raise issues as they are identified.

The learning objectives of this refresher course include:

Risk management
Types of hazards
Determining risk levels and controls
HSRs and work related stress issues
Work related stress and reasonably practicable
Work-related stress case studies
