Education Sector Specific HSR OHS Training

Section 67 of the OH&S Act 2004 entitles all elected Health & Safety Reps and Deputy Health & Safety Reps to undertake a WorkSafe Victoria-approved 5 Day  HSR Initial OHS Training Course (either in one full block of 5 days or splitting the 5 days into two multi-day sessions, if preferred) OR a 1 Day HSR Refresher OHS Training Course.  VTHC is approved by WorkSafe to deliver this important training.  An employer, if requested, must allow the HSR/DHSR to attend on paid time, pay the cost of the course and any other associated costs.  Section 67 also allows HSRs and DHSRs to choose the course, in consultation with their employer.

These HSR OHS training courses are tailored for workers in the education sector, from early childhood education through to tertiary. HSRs and DHSRs working in early childhood education, primary, secondary, TAFE and universities are also eligible to take a general HSR OHS training course.
