ANMF (Vic Branch) Health and Safety Rep (HSR) Training Courses

ANMF offers a program of HSR training courses. The Five-day Initial HSR OHS Course is for new HSRs while the One-day Refresher Course is designed to refresh HSRs' knowledge and understanding of the OHS regulatory framework.

 

The Bullying and Harassment - what you need to know program is an additional series of advanced level one-day training programs available to Regional Job Reps and HSRs during February and March 2014.

Job Reps and HSRs who undertake this training will be able to:

  • identify and define what is and isn't workplace bullying
  • understand their role in dealing with these issues in the workplace
  • understand the legal obligations of the employer to address such issues
  • have the opportunity to examine and apply their learning to some case study examples
  • receive a range of resources, information and materials relevant to the issue.


About the regional Job Rep/HSR seminars

The Annual Regional Job Rep/HSR Seminar will follow the advanced training and includes an ANMF (Vic Branch) 2014 activities update. This a great opportunity to meet elected officials, your ANMF Organiser and other Job Reps in your area and to join us for a social ‘happy hour'.
