Being a Health and Safety Representative (HSR) at GVH is a voluntary position, albeit a very beneficial and value adding one.
This means that:
- You won't be held accountable or responsible for any safety issues that occur within your Designated Work Group/Workplace or for solutions that you may have contributed during consultation or issue resolution process.
- You have a lot of flexibility in how you approach the Health and safety issue raised or identified.
- You have time and opportunity to build consultative, positive relationships with those around you and with whom you interact as a HSR.
HSR's are a conduit for information between Employees and Management to ensure that safety issues are dealt with in a timely and consultative manner.
