Health and safety representative refresher training can only be undertaken with an approved training provider.  Essential Training is an approved training provider (RTO) by the Work Health and Safety Commission in accordance with the Work Health and Safety Act 2020 to delivery this training in Perth, Western Australia.

Course Outline

This course is designed for qualified Health and Safety Representatives who have previously completed the initial 5-Day training.

Health and Safety Representatives play a critical role as the communication link between workers and managers in the management of the day to day health and safety issues.

As of January 2022, a number of new roles and functions for Health and Safety Representatives were added as part of the new WHS laws and legislation in Western Australia, this training will cover in detail what these changes are. HSRs are entitled to attend an approved five-day training course in work health and safety and a one-day refresher course each year during their term of office. This is an important element in the HSRs maintenance of their skills and knowledge.

If a HSR is re-elected, they are required to undertake a 1-Day refresher training course with an approved RTO within 3 months of the election.
