HSR training providers

Approved work health and safety training providers help health and safety representatives (HSRs) to understand and fulfill their role and functions.

HSRs are entitled to choose (in consultation with the employer) and attend an approved five-day training course in work health and safety and a one day refresher course each year during their term of office.

Becoming a HSR trainer

Training providers who wish to deliver health and safety representative (HSR) training in NSW must first read the approval conditions and ensure that they have sufficient resources to undertake the administrative activities necessary to comply.

There are two options for approval:

Option 1

Use our course materials

We have developed and approved a standard five-day HSR initial training course and a one day HSR refresher course for delivery in NSW by SafeWork approved training providers. Please refer to this manual for more information.

The application fee is shown in our list of fees and charges

Option 2

Development of your own course material for our approval

Applicants may submit their own course for approval rather than use our standard courses. Please refer to this how-to manual for more information.
