Health and safety representatives (HSRs)

If agreement can’t be reached between the PCBU and the HSR within three months, an inspector can be appointed to decide the matter.

An inspector may decide:

  • the course the HSR should attend
  • issues related to paid time off work to attend the course
  • payment of course fees and any other reasonable costs associated with attending the course
  • the time period since the HSR requested training.

If the HSR training has been requested by people entitled to request the training, confirmation details will be required.
