Workplace Health and Safetythe first point of contact a new employee or contractor has with your business is at your induction.
But is it covering all of the bases and efficiently helping to protect your business?
Are Your Worksite Inductions Protecting Your Business?
It is vital that your induction is detailed and thorough.
And it is tremendously important that everyone undertaking the induction understands the information that they’re being told.
Your induction needs to cover your WHS policies and procedures, every area of your business that contractors or employees may encounter, as well as what to do in certain situations.
Think of your induction as an introduction to all aspects of your business.
A great induction should show contractors or employees what is expected from them in their new roles.
The process will allow them to quickly and effectively identify what their role is in your company and then perform their job more effectively.
So, what makes an induction a great induction?
There is a fine balance between not enough information and too much information.
Also, the information needs to be presented in a way that’s engaging to the people it’s being presented to.
A great induction should cover not only the important practical WHS information but also your company’s values, vision, and culture.
Three of the most common complaints that new employees or contractors have after their induction is that it was boring, too overwhelming, or didn’t cover enough information, and they felt as if they were left to sink or swim in their new role.
Your workplace induction is the foundation that your WHS procedures are built on, and an engaging and well-thought-out induction process can only improve safety and also help new employees succeed in their roles and increase employee retention.
