Overview

This is an introduction to the role of a Health and Safety Representative under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA). Trainees will learn the requirements and obligations of a Health and Safety Representative as required by the HSWA.

On course completion, trainees should be able to explain and demonstrate their overall role and function as a Health and Safety Representative in a New Zealand workplace.

Prior Experience

Trainees should have prior understanding of the HSWA. Given there may be varying degrees of knowledge of the HSWA, this course includes a range of highly interactive training activities that will assess the experience of a trainee to determine the requirement for a post course activity. Dependent on the trainee's experience, post course activity may be required to complete the unit standard.
