Work Health and Safety Act 2012 (SA)
Level 1 Health and Safety Representative Courses

SA Unions is an approved provider of Health and Safety Representative training under the WHS Act.


SA Unions understands that DfE (school) employees have different characteristics than general organisations, however the WHS Act (2012) applies equally to both.


Taking this into account, the course is designed for Health and Safety Representatives working in DfE (Schools) and can also be used as a valuable HSR networking tool.  The course is delivered using the same format as the general Level 1 course, but takes into account different structures and services provided.
