2018 Conference Key points

The conference is approved by WorkSafe under section 69 of the Act which means that HSRs must be released on paid time so long as you give your employer 14 days’ notice. You have to negotiate with your employers to get Deputy HSRs released on paid time.

The day will focus on HSR Powers under Section 58 of the Act- you will learn from experts and other HSRs who have successfully used their powers as HSR to resolve OHS issues.

This year there will be satellite HSR conference events occurring in Bendigo, Albury/Wodonga and Morwell as well as the Melbourne conference
