SHE Rep: Apply Safety, Health and Environmental Protection Procedures (13223)

Purpose Of This Unit Standard

Learners are equipped and enabled to explain safety, health and environmental objectives, standards and regulations at the workplace, perform safety inspections, and identify and report on unsafe conditions.

Important Note

It is recommended that HIRA training must be combined with a SHE Rep US13223 (online) course as leaders, HR, SHE Reps and Covid-19 Compliance Officers must know how to do a proper Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment. The SHE Rep course outcomes are significantly important to the HIRA strategy understanding as it impacts capability and competence to implement and roll-out HIRA and all related Covid-129 compliance linked duties in the workplace.


1-day, face to face OR self – paced for online learning option as recommended.

Credit & Non-Credit Bearing Options

SETA accredited POE (credit-bearing) and non-credit bearing options.

Certificate Validity Period

Covid-19 Protocols As Directed

COVID-19 protocols and regulatory compliances are strictly observed and included in the training methodology and outcomes.




The Occupational Health and Safety Act of 1993 (amendment)  legislates and therefore compels organisations, companies, departments, and employers, require their employees and workforce to be skilled in various health and safety-related courses such as health and safety representative (SHE Rep), officer, supervisor, OHS Act, 16.2 workshop and also how to conduct a baseline (HIRA) risk assessment and take appropriate action all of which culminates in empowering employees and employers to successfully implement health and safety requirements into the workplace.

Training Methodology and Philosophy

A foundation of mentorship, raising awareness, respect and vigilance for health, safety, security and protection of spaces and places where people live, work, meet and gather.

Latest Remote-Work-From-Home & COVID-19 Directives Impacting Employees Safety

It is highly recommended that employers ensure that all staff who work off – site are trained in first-responder  eg. First Aid & Fire-Fighting Level 1 as a minimum, in case of an injury ‘on duty’ in the absence of the traditional, on-site first-responder(s), when medical emergencies arise out of office.  This recommendation is supported by the ILO’s ‘An employers’ guide on working from home in response to the outbreak of COVID-19′ (for quick reference to health and safety for remote workers, refer to page 19,20 and 21 ).

Target Market

Besides first responders in the workplace, the course is also highly recommended for employees working off-site remotely, as part of a H&S career-choice and entrepreneurship model for unemployed youth, women, community volunteer-NGO workers and anyone interested in health, safety, and saving lives.
