Course Overview

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 fulfil their role as a Health and Safety Representative (HSR) in New South Wales. Pinnacle Safety and Training is a SafeWork NSW approved provider of this course, which is compliant under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011.

HSRs in New South Wales are entitled to attend this SafeWork NSW approved five day training course within three months of making a request for such training to their PCBU. Employers are required to allow the HSR to take time off work to attend this training. Likewise, HSRs are also entitled to attend one day refresher courses every twelve months, commencing one year after the initial five day course has been completed (as per the Work Health and Safety legislation).

Each Trainee Must Provide

Participants must:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Provide valid ID (e.g. Driver’s Licence, passport) to the trainer on the morning of day 1 of training
  • Have at least a Year 10 level of numeracy, literacy and communication skills
  • Have the ability to read and write English

Your trainer was informative, amusing, helpful and an all round engaging trainer. He clearly communicated the course content and expected outcomes. I personally find it rare to enjoy classroom activities but the 5 days with this trainer was definitely the exception. My normal way of thinking and looking at problems were challenged and questioned for the better, I feel more capable in my role as a HSR and look forward to putting the knowledge and strategies into practice.
