Elected health and safety representatives (HSRs) play an important role in making Victorian workplaces safer. Where employees are represented by HSRs, employers must involve the HSRs in consultation. As the elected representatives of a designated work group, HSRs provide employees with a way to have their views and concerns about health and safety heard by their employer.

To exercise your powers and rights as a HSR effectively, it is essential that you (and if applicable, your deputy) receive training. This will provide you with the appropriate skills, knowledge and confidence to represent the people you work with.
