For the Best Result, you must Consult
With the ever-changing landscape presented by Covid-19, there is no better time for Health and Safety Representative (HSRs) to be involved in making our workplaces safer.
Consultation doesn’t need to be difficult. If you are making a decision that will affect the health and safety of your team, start a conversation with your HSR and employees. Being involved in making decisions can give employees a stronger commitment to implementing them.
HSR training is available online
The Covid-19 situation has changed the way we work and the way we educate our HSRs. We adapted to the situation by working with our training provider to facilitate online training and are proud to present our most recent HSR graduates who recently completed the HSR initial course entirely online.
If you are a new HSR or are in need of refresher training, we encourage you to visit the safety intranet to view available course dates and further information.
Tune into the next virtual Safety Café for HSRs
In June we held our first virtual Safety Café for HSRs via Webex. The Safety Café is a consultation initiative which provides an opportunity for HSRs to be kept up to date with the latest developments in OHS.
The bi-monthly event is hosted by our OHS advisors with agenda items being determined by current developments and HSR interest/feedback. Each Safety Café will also present the opportunity for questions and answers (via Slido).
The Safety Café forms part of our commitment to actively involve HSRs and employees in their health, safety and wellbeing, a key objective of the OHS Strategy 2018-2023. With the support of managers, we are confident that the Safety Café’s will result in increased consultation and an improved HSR knowledge base.
