HSR Work Health & Safety Training Courses

The CWU offers Comcare Approved Initial Work Health and Safety (WHS) Training for Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs).

The HSR Initial WHS Training Course has been approved by Comcare and is delivered by the union’s Comcare approved trainer. This HSR Initial WHS Training Course is 5 days.

The course provides HSRs with the basic skills and information to represent members in matters relating to health and safety.

Under the WHS Act 2011, Section 72, HSRs are entitled to attend an approved training course with the provider of their choice in consultation with their PCBU. The PCBU must allow HSR to undertake training as soon as reasonably practicable within 3 months of the request. This includes that the participant MUST complete all 5 days of the initial Commonwealth HSR Training within 6 months of their initial commencement date to obtain a Certificate of Attendance. The PCBU must also pay any fees associated with this training.

We encourage all CWU HSRs to attend training delivered by their union.
