Health and Safety Representatives

Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs) play a pivotal role in keeping South Australian workplaces safe.

By representing workers in their work group, HSRs provide a means for workers to raise safety issues within their workplace, and follow a process with employers to resolve them.

Wherever these issues are resolved successfully we avoid the human and financial costs of workplace injuries.

This section contains information for workers and employers on the role and functions of HSRs in the workplace, including:

  • how they are elected
  • who they represent
  • how safety issues are raised.
