Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs) have a vital role in making workplaces safe. Now that you’ve been elected, there are some things you need to know.
The Queensland HSRs Support Service is here to help.
First, you are not alone. You may already have the support of your union and if so, you should keep in close contact.
You now also have the benefit of the Qld HSR Support Service. If you have questions about your role, you can contact the service for confidential advice and support.
The Support Service will also establish networking opportunities for HSRs so you can learn from others doing the same role as you.
Your role is critical. Don’t think you have to do it on your own.
As well as contacting the HSR Support Service for advice and support, you can also contact:
- Your union (contact details are available on the Queensland Unions website or by phone on (07) 3010 2555.)
- Workplace Health & Safety Queensland on 1300 362 128
