HSR Training (5 Days)


The Work Health and Safety Act 2011 gives Health & Safety Representatives the right to attend formal Health and Safety Representative (HSR) training. Our HSR training course meets the requirements for Health and Safety Representative training in NSW. HSR training course participants will be trained to meet the requirements of the legislation and become equipped to perform an active and competent role as a member of a Workplace Health and Safety Committee or as a Health and Safety Representative in the workplace. Successful HSR training course participants will receive a certificate of completion. Participants must attend all sessions to be eligible for a certificate. It is a requirement that the Health and Safety Representative training course runs for 5 days.

HSR Training Course Outline

  • Day 1: Work Health and Safety Framework
  • Day 2: Consultation, Representation and Participation
  • Day 3: Role of the HSR in Issue Resolution and minimising risks
  • Day 4: Inspections, Notifiable Incidents and Incident Investigation (Practical)
  • Day 5: Provisional Improvement Notices (PINs) and ceasing unsafe work


We also offer a single day refresher course which will:

  • refresh the information and skills attained in the initial five day HSR training course
  • assist HSRs to carry out their role and functions under the WHS legislation in their workplace.

This course is for HSRs who have completed the initial training, or managers who would like to understand the role of their HSRs and gain an introduction to work health and safety. To receive the WorkCover NSW certificate on this course HSRs must have completed the approved HSR five day initial training course (or the one day Bridging course in 2012). Participants must provide evidence of completing the prerequisite in the form of an original certificate. Participants who cannot provide an ORIGINAL certificate will receive a Statement of Attendance.
