Representative Training (Level 3)

All workplaces need a health and safety representative.

Who is yours?

Ensuring your representative is up to date with current rules and regulations, best practice, their power to issue a Provisional Improvement Notice (PIN) and their role as an advocate for workers is your responsibility as an employer. As the business owner you may well be the default heath and safety representative, in which case this course will ensure you are up to date with your obligation to provide a safe and healthy workplace for your team.
