A client of mine (through TerraMedia), Gold Coast Institute of Technology, has just recently launched a new WHS course catering to the 2011 Work Health and Safety Act regarding health and safety representatives (HSR’s).
According to the QLD Government website, the HSR is elected by staff and their main role is to liaise with staff to identify health and safety issues then pass that information on to management.
The HSR course is available with flexible times including a 5 day intensive that funding may be available for depending on your circumstances.
For those interested, you can access the new course info by going here. They will also be able to help you to work out if funding is available.
