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.
