Safe Work Australia has facilitated the development of a national HSR training package. The HSR training package incorporates the training requirements for HSRs under the model work health and safety laws.
The training package has been approved by representatives from states, territories and the Commonwealth. and is being implemented in the respective jurisdictions.
Each state and territory is assessing current training requirements for HSRs to determine if they are similar or substantially different from the national HSR training package. Where training requirements are substantially different, HSRs under the model WHS laws will need to complete gap training to be able to direct that unsafe work ceases or issue PINs.
Further information in regards to training for Health and Safety Representatives can be found here.
