Approved HSR training courses and providers

Health and safety representatives (HSRs) need relevant knowledge and skills to allow them to exercise their powers to promote and ensure the health and safety of members of their work-groups.

Under the WHS Regulations and outlined in section 72 of the WHS Act they are entitled to attend a training course in work health and safety that is approved by the regulator. These include:

  • A five-day initial course of training, suitable for HSRs elected after 1 January 2012 who wish to exercise their full powers and functions—in particular sections 85 and 90 of the WHS Act.
  • A one-day refresher training course for each year of office after they have completed the five-day initial course of training and includes ongoing terms of office if re-elected.
  • If an HSR, trained in the initial five-day training and has left the work group, for any reason other than permanent disqualification, and is re-elected as an HSR for any work group, they are entitled to attend the one-day refresher course from their first year of office.
  • Refresher courses are tailored to build knowledge related to specific legislative and HSR skills development and provide an overview of the learning outcomes covered in the five-day initial training.


Details of the learning outcomes for HSR training courses are outlined in Part 2 of the HSR training course requirements. For further information, see:

The following contact details are for providers of approved HSR training courses for members of any organisation in the Commonwealth jurisdiction.
