HSR Refresher OHS Training Course

HSR Refresher OHS Training Course

Under the OHS Act 2004 (Section 67), all elected HSRs and Deputy HSRs, after completing a 5 Day HSR Initial OHS Training Course, have an entitlement for each year they hold office to attend a WorkSafe Victoria-approved 1 Day HSR Refresher OHS Training Course at least once in each year.  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. 

This interactive training course approved by WorkSafe includes relevant case studies and activities and aims to provide HSRs and DHSRs with the confidence, skills and knowledge to represent their co-workers (ie. their designated work group) when raising health and safety concerns in the workplace.  It provides participants an opportunity to revisit aspects of the HSR Initial OHS Training Course.

The HSR Refresher OHS Training Course covers:

  • Session 1 - covers legislative update on the Victorian OHS 2004 Act, OHS Regulations 2017, WorkSafe compliance codes and guides.
  • Session 2 - covers consultation, communication, problem solving.
  • Sessions 3 & 4 - covers hazard identification and control with either manual handling, work-related stress, incident investigation or hazard mapping.

Course length: 1 day
Course fee: $380 incl. GST (Metro and Regional).
