Safety Induction Pragram

As an employer, you have a duty of care under the Work Health & Safety Act to ensure your workplace is safe. A key aspect to this process is ensure staff understand your work health and safety policies and procedures. You must also make sure they undertake any necessary training before using potentially dangerous equipment or materials. A well-prepared and comprehensive Safety Induction Program helps staff quickly understand the responsibilities of their new role and your expectations of them.

New staff are at greater risk of injuring themselves at work than existing staff. For this reason, work health and safety training should have a high priority in your staff induction program. As an employer you must conduct a work health and safety induction as soon as practically possible. Induction programs are also a useful tool to reinforce safety on site for staff who may be changing roles or returning from a long absence from work.

Inductions will vary depending on whether the staff member is new or they are an existing staff member switching roles or returning from a long absence. New staff members will need a more comprehensive induction than existing ones. In addition to improving safety on site, inductions help new staff understand the safety culture of your business and the processes they need to follow.
