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.
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.
