The role of the Health and Safety Representative (HSR) is primarily to liaise with other staff to identify health and safety issues and convey these to management. HSRs are elected by fellow staff to represent the views of the staff group.
This course provides participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to fulfill their role as a Health and Safety Representative (HSR) in Queensland.
HSR's in Queensland must undertake the five-day WHSQ approved training course within three months of their election. If a worker chooses not to undertake the training within the time period, they will no longer be eligible to fulfil the role of HSR and will need to be replaced.
HSR's and deputy HSR's can ask a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) to attend approved courses. Employers are required allow the HSR to take time off work to attend this training.
HSR's are also required to attend a refresher course at least every three years (with the entitlement to refresher training beginning three years after the initial training). If a person has gone over the three-year refresher period, WHSQ requires the person to attend the full 5-day initial HSR course again.
