Description

Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs) Refresher Training

HSRs can direct a worker in the work group to stop unsafe work if they reasonably believe workers would be exposed to a serious risk to their health and safety. This stop-work direction can only be given if the issue has not been resolved by consultation, or if the risk is so serious and immediate or imminent that it’s unreasonable to consult first.

On successful completion of Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs) Training, participants will receive a SafeWork NSW Health and Safety Representative Training Statement of Attendance.

Just completed the traffic controller and implementer course and had an exceptional experience. Our trainer, Mahmoud, was highly interactive, and the delivery was fantastic, making the sessions engaging and enjoyable. Mahmoud ensured that all the information was both concise and detailed, which greatly enhanced our understanding of the material. His teaching style and thoroughness left me feeling well-prepared for assessment. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to get started in traffic control and implementation.
