HSR WHS Initial Online (NSW)

Health and Safety Representative Initial WHS Training Course (5 Days)

Participant profile: Suitable for individuals or groups. Each participant must have their own computer or laptop.

Duration: 5 days, 7 hours participation time per day, 1 hour total break time.

Course Outline

This course is designed to develop the skills and knowledge an HSR needs to represent their workgroup. It provides HSRs with information on their role, and entitlements and protections, and information on WHS legislation needed to promote a safe work culture in their workplace.

Under the WHS Act (2011), HSRs are entitled to attend an initial training course.

The Act requires employers to cover the cost of the course and allow HSRs paid time off to attend.

Our Difference

SysTec are leaders in WHS and OHS compliance, working in the industry for over 25 years. Our courses provide relevant information, ongoing support, and efficient delivery.

Our professional trainers have experience in and out of the classroom providing the best experience for our students and empowering them to create safer workplaces.

Now you can learn from the comfort of your home or workplace with the support of our trainers. Our high-tech video conferencing system allows you to join live, interactive, instructor lead presentations, ask questions in real time, complete activities, and collaborate with your classmates in digital breakout rooms.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Understanding key WHS terminology
  • Interpreting the WHS legislative framework and its relationship to the HSR
  • Participating in consultation and issue resolution
  • Establishing representation in the workplace
  • Issuing Provisional Improvement Notice (PIN) and directing cessation of work
  • Understanding the role of SafeWork and its relationship to the HSR
  • Identifying key parties and their legislative obligations and duties

Who Should Attend:

Health & Safety Representatives and Deputy Health and Safety Representatives.

Although HSRs are the primary audience, managers, supervisors, health and safety committee members, and anyone else with an interest in health and safety may also benefit from attending this course.
If WHS training has not been undertaken in over 2 years, this course may be a good opportunity to update your WHS skills. (note: HSRs have only one entitlement for initial training however the absence of an entitlement does not prevent an employer who recognises the benefits of HSRs receiving training from allowing them to attend additional courses).

After completing the HSR Initial course, HSRs and deputy HSRs can do a one-day refresher once every year.
