HSR Training in Nowra – Health and Safety Representative
Course Dates and Venues
A person who conducts a business or undertaking (PCBU) must consult, so far as reasonably practicable, with workers who carry out work for the business or undertaking and who are, or likely to be, directly affected by a work health and safety matter. Part five of the WHS Act allows for workers to be consulted and represented through health and safety representatives. Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs) are elected to represent workers in a Work Group on health and safety matters.
In consultation with the employer (PCBU), HSRs are entitled to choose and attend a Work Cover approved five-day training course in work health and safety (WHS) and a one-day refresher course each year during their term of office.
At ATL Safety Solutions, we demonstrate due diligence in delivering up-to-date and approved WHS information for HSRs to fully understand and succeed in their roles and functions. After completing our HSR training package, HSRs are enabled to assist both management and workers to ensure a safe and legislative compliant workplace.

Day 2: Establishing representation in the workplace under the WHS Act
