South Australia

HSRs are entitled to attend an HSR training course, provided the course is approved by SafeWork SA (as per section 72 of the model WHS Act). HSRs can attend a five-day training course in the first year and one-day refresher courses each year of the remaining two years of their term.

A person who has completed a course of training approved under the current Occupational Health, Safety and Welfare Act 1986 (SA) will be taken to have completed the five-day training course required under the model WHS Act (Schedule 6, section 19), if they undertake a one day bridging course (Regulation 706). This will apply for 12 months after the commencement of the Work Health and Safety Bill 2011.
