Induction & Safety Training
Section 5 is your guide to Induction & Safety Training. For workers this means a general introduction to health and safety requirements as set out in this workbook and in relation to company and legislative requirements. As the work of contractors also comes under the legislative responsibility of the employer, it is important that all subbies are aware of health and safety policies, procedures or workplace hazards.
The Induction Training Checklist should be used as a guide for all the areas of training and workers should sign off once they are familiar with those areas. You should add anything that isn’t listed here and go through that area with the workers to make sure that they understand their responsibilities for safety. If there are further safety issues that arise you should conduct specific training in that area and add it to the General Safety Training Records provided in this section of your workbook. This may need to be undertaken for specific job site safety issues on every job.
