This course is for delegates and provides an overview of the Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation, with particular focus on the consultation and risk management process. This course also gives delegates the skills to set up health and safety structures within their workplace e.g. the establishment of work groups, election of Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs) and safety committees to ensure WHS issues and grievances are effectively dealt with.
The course explores how delegates can work with HSRs to provide an integrated union approach to the resolution of WHS issues, organise around WHS issues and thus strengthen union growth. Delegates and HSRs from the same workplace are encouraged to attend together.
