HSR Initial OHS Training Course

Overview

HSR representatives have a vital role in workplace OHS and under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (OHS Act) their role, powers and entitlements are well recognised.

Under section 67 of the Victorian OHS Act 2004 an employer, if requested, must allow an elected HSR and elected Deputy HSR to attend a WorkSafe approved “HSR Initial OHS Training” course on paid time, pay the cost of the course and any other associated costs.

HSRs/DHSRs can choose the course they wish to attend in consultation with their employer.

RMIT University is approved to deliver the HSR Initial OHS Training Course.
