HSR Initial OHS Training Course – Victoria


HSR Initial OHS Training Course – Victoria

The primary role of an HSR is to represent their co-workers’ occupational health and safety issues, concerns and interests.

Section 67 also allows HSRs to choose the course in consultation with their employer.
