Does a WHS committee member need extra training?
Question: Our construction services company in NSW has just elected its first WHS committee. Must we provide anyone with official training to be a part of the WHS committee? The workers are highly trained in their roles for high-risk work but do not hold any formal WHS training. No one has requested the training.
One committee member will be our company WHS manager, who has a diploma in WHS and a Cert IV in TAE. The rest of the committee will comprise our construction staff.
