Approved Queensland Health and Safety Representative (HSR) Refresher Course

Well trained and competent Health and Safety Representatives provide value to the organisation by managing health and safety in their workplace. They have an understanding of the Queensland Workplace Health and Safety Act  and develop their skills to understand their role as a Health and Safety Representative in Queensland.

During their term in office HSRs and Deputy HSRs are entitled to attend a 1 day refresher course at least every three years, commencing from the date of their original training, as outlined under the WHS Act 2011.

The KINNECT Training Health and Safety Representatives Refresher course is approved by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland (WHSQ).  For more information on the requirements to be an HSR in Queensland visit the Worksafe Queensland website.


The subject matter is tough to deliver virtually and to keep everyone engaged is difficult, but the trainer did an excellent job!
