New legislation replacing old OH&S.
Sydney Technical Institute has been approved by WorkCover as one of their select providers for the delivery of the HSR training.
On January 1st, 2012, the new Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws came into effect.The new laws were designed to create a national consistency for workplace safety policies and practices.
How these changes affect you.
OHS representatives and OHS committees have been replaced by Health and Safety Representatives (HSR’s) and Health and Safety Committees (HSCs) The role of the HSR representative differs from the OHS representative through the inclusion of extra powers and functions including the ability to issue Provisional Improvement Notices (PINS) and to direct unsafe work practices to cease. To exercise these new powers, WorkCover have developed an approved HSR training course.
