Comcare Approved HSR FAQ

An elected health and safety representatives (HSR) functions include:

  • Represent the workers in your work group on health and safety matters and in discussions with managers on hazards and safety issues
  • Monitor measures taken by the PCBU for their effectiveness
  • Promote the health and safety of workers in your work group
  • Provide a vital communication link between people at work and the PCBU

A HSR is not expected to be an expert on health and safety, and is not responsible for fixing problems in the workplace.

There are 2 criteria to be met to be a health and safety representative (HSR).

  1. You are a member of the work group that elected you to be a HSR
  2. You have not been disqualified in a court or tribunal from performing the HSR role.

The Work Health and Safety Act 2011 entitles workers to be represented by a health and safety representative (HSR).

Any worker may ask a PCBU to organise an election for a HSR. The PCBU must begin negotiations within 14 days of receiving a request from a worker.

A health and safety representative (HSR) can perform the majority of their powers and functions without having completed the initial HSR Training.

However, a HSR must have completed the 5 Day HSR training before they can direct a work group member to cease unsafe work and/or issue a provisional improvement notice.
