This interactive 1-day workshop, approved by WorkSafe Victoria, will help HSRs to understand and exercise their powers effectively.

The training will provide HSRs with the confidence, skills and knowledge to represent their co-workers (i.e. DWG), particularly when raising health and safety concerns in relation to work-related stress and/or work-related violence.

Although HSRs / Deputy HSRs are the primary audience, managers, supervisors, health and safety committee members may also benefit from attending this course.

Not sure if OHS training will work on Zoom? Here is what our participants have said:

  •  On-line training is ideal (COC)
  • On-line format is by far the best format for our area (remote schools) (PN)
  • A great facilitator ... who has accommodated to working on Zoom, and is more confident on it than anyone I have seen is a testament to the pride he takes in his work and his commitment to health and safety. It was a pleasure to meet him and I really enjoyed my Fridays with the group. I am sad they are over. (AC)
  • Was an excellent training seminar and I felt you guys did a fantastic job delivering it electronically remotely during Covid19 Social restrictions (AH).
  • Zoom worked well (MB et al).

Work-related stress factors, also known as psychosocial hazards, are anything in the management or design of work that increases the risk of work-related stress, which can lead to physical injury, mental injury or even both at the same time.

Work‐related violence involves any incident in which a person is abused, threatened or assaulted in circumstances relating to their work. The definition covers a broad range of actions and behaviours that can create a risk to the health and safety of employees.  It includes behaviour often described as acting out, challenging behaviour and behaviours of concern

HSRs and Deputy HSRs have an entitlement to this training. Section 67 of the Vic OHS Act provides for HSRs (and Deputy HSRs) to choose their course in consultation with their employer.  (Please note: WSV require each participant should complete the enrolment form.)

Attendance at all sessions is required in order to be awarded a Certificate of Attendance. (As the course is not competency based, there is no formal assessment.)

Note: HSRs are entitled to attend a 'Health & Safety Representative INITIAL OHS Training Course' .
