Elected Health And Safety Representatives
Health and safety representatives (HSRs) play a vital role in making Victorian workplaces safer.
A safe workplace is more easily achieved when employers and heath and safety representatives regularly talk to each other about potential problems, and work together to find solutions.
HSRs are employees who are elected by the members of their Designated Work Group (DWG) to represent them, providing a way for their views and concerns about health and safety to be heard by their employer. All elected HSRs are entitled to undertake VWA approved HSR training.
VWA has a dedicated site for HSRs that contains a range of resources, tools and other information to assist HSRs, such as:
- Electing HSRs
- Training for HSRs
- Consulting with HSRs
- And much more
