REMINDER: Health and Safety Training

The CWU is currently coordinating a programme of training for Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs) in Telstra.

If you are a Telstra HSR and

  • were elected after 1 January 2012 and
  • have not yet undertaken an approved training course 

you must be trained in order to be able to exercise your full powers under the Act. 

If you are in this position, you are encouraged to contact the CWU National Office immediately. There are still places on the next course the CWU is organising. 


  • You cannot function fully as an HSR if you have not been trained.
  • You have the right to choose what course you attend.
  • Telstra must cover all costs associated with your training.
  • You do not have to be a CWU member to attend this course. 

Contact Dave Smithwick at for further information.
