As a health and safety representative (HSR) you have been elected by members of your work group to represent them in health and safety matters. Your role is not to 'fix' health and safety problems in the workplace, nor are you expected to be an expert on work health and safety (WHS) issues.
Your role is to represent workers in your work group and monitor that the person conducting the business or undertaking (PCBU) is ensuring health and safety standards. You will find that effective consultation is one of the most important skills you will need in your role.
Virtual Office can help you to understand the types of hazards and risks associated with the work you and your work colleagues face.The risks an HSR faces are the physical risks outlined in the rooms in the virtual office. It is also possible that in the process of assisting the PCBU you may encounter interpersonal conflicts.
