How do you define a Health and Safety Representative?

A health and safety representative (HSR) is someone who has been elected by the members of their work group to represent them in all workplace health and safety related matters.
Any organisation can choose to have HSRs and having one on your team creates a well-established method to support worker engagement and participation.
HSRs are elected by a workgroup, which is a defined group of employees who work for the person conducting the business (PCBU). The workgroup can be the whole workplace, or the workers grouped by work areas, occupations, work sites or other arrangements.
How a workgroup or work groups are organised will depend on what is effective for the PCBU and the workers, given the structure of the organisation.
