HSR Refresher OHS Training Course - Work-related gendered violence  including sexual harassment

HSR Refresher OHS Training Course
Work-related gendered violence including sexual harassment

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.

Work-related gendered violence including sexual harassment is a serious occupational health and safety issue that can be addressed under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004.

This WorkSafe-approved training course will help HSRs and DHSRs to understand and exercise their powers effectively. The training will provide HSRs and DHSRs with the confidence, skills and knowledge to represent their co-workers (ie. their designated working group) when raising health and safety concerns in relation to work-related gendered violence and to understand the health and safety issues arising from incidents of work-related gendered violence.
