Course Details

What subjects are covered in our HSR Refresher OHS Training Course?

WAM Training’s WorkSafe-approved HSR Refresher OHS Training Course is designed to provide an update on:

  • Legislation
  • Risk management on specific and general hazards
  • HSR entitlements and powers
  • HSR skills

Whilst the above general subjects are covered in each course, there will also be a particular focus subject from the following:

  • Plant: Concentrates on safety aspects related to plant and equipment such as industrial machinery, tools, vehicles, and other mechanical or electrical equipment
  • Work-Related Violence: Addresses safety concerns related to workplace violence
  • Work-Related Stress: Focuses on managing stress-related risks in the workplace

The focus subject for each course is listed beside the associated course dates.

Keep reading to find out more!

Utilising a series of group-based role plays throughout the day, our focused curriculum covers legislative updates, tailored risk management strategies for a diverse range of workplace hazards, and an in depth revision of HSR entitlements. This also includes refreshing their legal rights, preparing them for OHS challenges and how to navigate employee/employer relations in the face of workplace safety obstacles. Upon completion, participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance.

This annual refresher, in line with the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (Vic.), allows a HSR to adequately represent workers in matters of OHS workplace safety. Armed with updated information and improved skills, HSRs can liaise with supervisors and employees, issue Provisional Improvement Notices (PIN), and order a work stoppages in unsafe conditions.

Section 67 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (Vic.), stipulates that employers in Victoria have a legal duty to allow their HSRs and Deputy HSRs to undergo training with at least 14 days’ notice if they so wish. Employers are obligated to bear the expenses of the course and maintain the regular pay of their HSRs while they are attending the course.

This is a proper course. No doing the assessment copying answers from your book. In saying that the way Lindsay explains everything and gives you tips on how to operate a forklift especially for me the first time on a forklift you have nothing to fear. Doing the pracs & test with Gary: he puts you at ease and explains everything well so you are not under pressure while doing them.

We had Stone as our Trainer, I have been attending these first aid courses for a very long time. Stone would have to be the best Trainer I have come across, it was fun, interactive and not death by power point. The way he presented made you think it through rather than just visually looking at something.Well done to Stone you are a credit to WAM Training

I have just completed my forklift license course and I am so happy with the training I received. My trainer Steve was brilliant, he was thorough and took the time to ensure all of us passed our assessment. Even when WorkSafe showed up unannounced to do their inspections, they walked out looking very pleased indeed! An exemplary training facility with high standards regarding health and safety. Friendly reception, plentiful parking, modern machinery and equipment. Will absolutely be visiting again for future courses and will be recommending to all. Thank you Steve and Lindsay, you are both exceptional at your job!

I got my fork lift licence through wam training. The fella running the class Lindsey is up there with some of the funniest people I have met. His course coverage was in depth and thorough. He is straight to the point and informative. It's worth getting your licence just to here the blokes banter. If this guy wasn't teaching people how to drive forks he could probably do stand up. Thanks and take care big fella.

Staff from entry to your exits, they treat people with respect, free fruits basket to grab, men and women alike, were professionals and polite. The trainers were clear and helpful, tries to make course less boring (though the materials were still boring, but hey, it's in our DNA). Brings in lunch orders by staff, seen female students doing the courses which was cool and not one-sided. All in all, I got two tickets from them and the staffs were not simply there for a paycheck. For the employers, your workers, if they have ears and half of a brain of a 10 year old with a calculator, they can pass.
