2016 HSR Initial WHS 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.

The employer must allow HSR to undertake training as soon as practicable within 6 months of the request. The PCBU (employer) must also pay any fees associated with this training.
