WHS Induction Program: Best Tips for Creating WHS Inductions

New contractors and employees are at greater risk of injuring themselves at work than existing staff. Creating the best WHS Induction ensures your contractors and employees receive a truly engaging and comprehensive induction experience. WHS content can be overwhelming, complex, a lot of it to read and understand and acknowledge and so its important that the way its structured and setup is clear and easy for your workforce to progress through. The best way to do this is via an induction program which is typically done online. Here we'll walk through some of the best tips, structure and setup for creating a WHS Induction Program and what to put in it from including a WHS induction checklist through to policies, an a guide to delivering it to contractors and employees.

WHS Inductions for Contractors

Lets start with contractors, typically they need to go through comprehensive WHS induction content based on their level of risk

High risk construction work might require comprehensive induction forms and check lists to go through and acknowledge as well as going through engaging content around

If someone is only doing a low risk trade or service, you don't need to present such a highly comprehensive and complex set of induction requirements to them compared to say high risk workers.

Being able to tailor your induction to risk level is very important around these areas. Meet WHS requirements based on the specific risk level of your workforce.

Common WHS Checklist Items

A WHS checklist is a very common part of a WHS induction program. Its both an acknowledgement tool and the option to centralise important documents and materials to download and be aware of ranging from safety policies through to safety procedures.

Acknowledge Health and Safety Policy
Safety procedures specific to the role
Risks
How to report an incident
How to report a hazard
How to access the Hazard registry
Environmental policy
Site access
Personal Protective Equipment Issued
Working at heights procedures
Working in confined spaces procedures
Working with noise procedures
First aid facilities

WHS Laws in different regions

Safety laws around the country vary and so its important to make sure that the WHS induction program is catered to the specific state / region

What to include in your presentation also depends on your type of work and industry

Employees and Work health and safety inductions

Similar to employees, they too need to go through a WHS induction covering what to do in the event of an emergency.

- brief on workers comp and rehab rights
- first aid plans
- who are the designated safety reps and contacts
- how to report an incident or hazard in the workplace
- where the hazard registry of all known hazards are
- policies and procedures in line with state legislation

Staff returning to work after a long absence will need to revisit your work health and safety policies in case they've forgotten anything while they've been away
