Course content

Legislation allows elected health and safety representatives (HSR) to undergo training that complies with workplace health and safety regulations otherwise known as the Work Health and Safety Act 2011.

The HSR initial five day course provides participants with the skills and knowledge to enable them to fulfil the role of HSR as set down in section 72 of the Work Health and Safety Act 2011.

What the workshop will cover:

  • interpreting the work health and safety legislative framework and its relationship to the HSR
  • identifying key parties and their legislative obligations and duties
  • establishing representation in the workplace
  • participating in consultation and issue resolution
  • representing members in the work health and safety risk management process
  • issuing a provisional improvement notice and directing the cessation of work.

Why your business needs to train their staff to be a health and safety representative:

HSRs are elected employees in organisations to represent the health and safety interests of workers within their workplace. This will give them knowledge of what their responsibilities are and an understanding of how the legislation works.


Eve Somsich is a NT WorkSafe approved health and safety representative trainer with extensive experience teaching in the vocational education and training sector.
