Online - Refresher - Health and Safety Representative (HSR) Training

The 1-day Health and Safety Representative (HSR) Refresher course is designed to renew the knowledge and skills students obtained during their initial 5-day initial HSR training course.

With a focus on delivering flexible training options, WorkSafe Connect is now delivering the Health and Safety Representative (HSR) Refresher course online through live video led training. Regardless of your location, as long as you have access to the technology requirements (set out in Course Delivery below) then you are able to take advantage of this delivery method.

Under the Work Health & Safety Regulations, HSR's are required to undertake one-day refresher training once every 3 years. If refresher training is not undertaken in within this 3 year timeframe, it's likely the HSR will need to attend the five (5) day initial Health and Safety Representative course again.

WorkSafe Connect has been delivering workplace health and safety training for over 15 years and is one of Queensland’s leading suppliers of HSR training courses.  We offer this program in Townsville, Brisbane and Onsite and focus on delivering engaging and practical training.
