HSR Training Course Assessment Tool

On 25 November 2010, the Seafarers Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Authority (Seacare Authority) approved new Guidelines for the accreditation of health and safety representative (HSR) training courses.

In addition to the new Guidelines, the Seacare Authority has introduced new accreditation measures to assess HSR training courses against the Guidelines. These new measures utilise a Health and safety representatives (HSR) training course - assessment report (assessment report) which comprises an extensive list of questions based upon the training requirements set out in the new Guidelines.

The questions contained in the assessment report outline the intention and expectation contained in the Guidelines for accreditation for both newly developed courses and for re-accreditation of currently existing HSR courses.

To assist training providers to comply with the new Guidelines and to obtain Seacare Authority accreditation, please use the following assessment report:
