What will be covered?

This WorkSafe-approved training course will help HSRs to understand and exercise their powers effectively.

The training will provide HSRs with the confidence, skills and knowledge to represent their designated work group when raising health and safety concerns in relation to work-related gendered violence, including sexual harassment.

HSRs are in a position where they can act on behalf of employees in their designated work group to raise issues that are identified. To do this, they require a level of understanding of the subject matter. This training steps through information on work-related gendered violence, including sexual harassment, to assist in providing that level of understanding to enable the HSR to identify factors that are impacting psychological health and safety. With this knowledge, they are able to liaise with their designated work group and management to raise issues as they are identified.

Positive mental health is a state of psychological and emotional wellbeing that allows people to participate in their community, work, education and families while coping with the ordinary challenges of life.

This training course covers the important subject area of work-related gendered violence, including sexual harassment. It examines factors that can negatively impact mental health and safety, resulting in negative impacts on other areas of a worker's health and life.

Comprehensive participant notes and up to date supplementary information will be provided.
