3. Information, instruction, training and supervision
As an employer, you should assess what information, instruction and training each worker needs and ensure it’s in place for when they start work.
You should nominate someone to deliver it and give details on where, when and how it will be done.
In providing essential job-related training, you should:
- plan induction training carefully and deliver it with plain, simple language
- provide information about the risks workers may be exposed to and the precautions they will need to take to avoid them, including how to use safety equipment
- check workers fully understand the information and training they are given to ensure they can work safely and know how to raise health and safety concerns
- ensure workers fully understand any emergency arrangements and procedures
- ensure workers are adequately supervised and are able to communicate effectively with their supervisors
- consider the needs of workers who do not speak English well (or at all) and whether you will need translation services
