This course has been designed to equip participants with the skills and knowledge they need to effectively represent others on matters of workplace safety and health and has been developed for newly elected safety and health representatives who have not previously attended approved safety and health representative’s training.
Note that under safety and health legislation in Western Australia, formally elected safety and health representatives are entitled to time off work with pay to attend this course.
The course is $850 per person (public workshops). Special rates can be negotiated for workshops conducted by Training Services Australia on behalf of our clients, exclusively for their personnel. Note that an additional assessment fee of $150 applies for those who wish to be assessed against units of competency from the Certificate III in OHS which are aligned to this course.
The course is delivered in a training room by experienced industry trainers, using face-to-face delivery techniques. It includes a combination of individual and group activities, discussions, case studies and practical exercises.
Day 1 – Occupational Safety and Health Legislation
Day 2 – Communication and representation
Day 3 – Hazard identification and risk management
Day 4 – Inspections and investigations
Day 5 – Conflict resolution and Provisional Improvement Notices (PINs)
No qualifications or previous experience are necessary to participate in this course. However, participants need to have sufficient language and literacy skills to:
- Read and understand legislation, standards and codes of practice
- Consult with others on workplace safety and health matters
