If a HSR requests training, a PCBU must allow them to complete the training as outlined in Section 72 of the WHS Act. WorkSafe ACT approves the following courses of training in work health and safety:
- Initial course of training (5 day course)
- Refresher training — entitlement to attend each year commencing one year after the initial training (1 day bridging course)
A HSR is not able to exercise all their powers — issuing provisional improvement notices (PINs), directing cessation of work — if they have not completed a course of training approved by WorkSafe ACT.
