STAGE 1: INITIAL HSR TRAINING (ONLINE)

Course Outline

Kia ora and welcome to the online Initial Health & Safety Representative Training course. Please note that we will be taking a break over Xmas/NY and back on deck from 17 Jan 2022. During this time our trainers will not be available to facilitate training. You may still register but will not receive training resources until after this date.

This online course equips HSRs with the skills to promote a safer and healthier place of work and also covers Unit Standard 29315 “Describe the role and functions of the Health and Safety Representative in a NZ workplace”. Successful completion of US 29315 (via the assessed quiz and fillable PIN) allows an HSR to exercise their powers to issue provisional improvement notices (PINs) and direct unsafe work to cease.

Although this course is completed fully online, under the Health and Safety at Work Regulation’s 2016 learners are entitled to two (2) days paid leave. Link to the legislation here.
