Commonwealth Amend H&S Rep Training

01/10/2012

The Commonwealth has amended the WHS Regulations (Reg. 21) to allow existing health and safety representatives to attend a short “bridging” course, instead of completing the full 5-day approved course. The safety authority will still need to approve the shorter bridging course (duration not prescribed in the amendment Regulations).

Note: The entitlement to a 1-day annual refresher course, following completion of the approved initial course, remains unaltered.
