Training for safety and health representatives
All elected safety and health representatives should attend an accredited introductory training course within 12 months of being elected. This training will help a safety and health representative to understand and exercise their powers effectively. Training equips representatives with the confidence, skills and knowledge to represent their workplace. Ideally training should take place as soon as possible after election.
Completion of the introductory safety and health representative course gives you the option to have your training recognised as part of the Certificate III in Work Health and Safety within the vocational education and training system. This option is entirely voluntary and, if interested, you should talk to your training provider.
Accredited training providers
Safety and health representative training can only be undertaken with an approved training provider. Courses are accredited by the Commission for Occupational Safety and Health in accordance with the Western Australian Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984.
You can choose from the list of accredited training providers
If you have previously received training, you may consider in consultation with your employer, a post-introductory course to update your knowledge.
