Health and safety representative training
You do not need any experience or special qualifications to become a Health and Safety Representative (HSR).
However, HSRs and deputy HSRs can ask a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) to attend approved courses.
The PCBU must give HSRs paid time off to attend a course and pay the course costs and reasonable expenses, within three months of the request.
A HSR can only issue a provisional improvement notice (PIN) if they have attended an approved training course.
Training courses approved under section 21 of the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011, are:
- an initial five day training course
- an annual one day refresher course.
