Any employee may ask his or her employer to establish designated work groups, and the particulars of the groups are to be determined by negotiation and agreement between the employer and the employees.
These negotiations should commence within 14 days of the request. An employer may also be the one to initiate negotiations. You can seek assistance from your union when negotiating DWGs. For further information visit WorkSafe Victoria guide on employee representation.
Under the OHS Act the term or an HSR is 3 years unless negotiated to be less prior to election. After that time an HSR can be re-elected. For further information visit WorkSafe Victoria for a guide on employee representation.
If a notifiable incident occurs in your workplace your employer needs to notify WorkSafe Victoria immediately by phone and submit a report within 48 hours.
