HSRs are elected by fellow staff to represent the views of the staff group. Health and safety representatives (HSRs) need relevant knowledge and skills to allow them to exercise their powers to promote and ensure the health and safety of members of their work-groups. As a HSR, you can make an invaluable contribution to create a safer workplace for you and your fellow workers including management.
