Terms of office

Safety and health representatives are elected for a term of two years to represent employees in an area, workplace or group determined during consultation before the election.
Safety and health representatives also cease to hold their positions if they:

  • Leave their job 
  • Resign from the position 
  • Transfer from the area they were elected to represent: or 
  • Are disqualified by the Occupational Safety and Health Tribunal.

In any of these circumstances, either the employer or the safety and health representative should notify WorkSafe so the database can be updated.
