New employees must be advised of all workplace health and safety risks before they start a job. This document provides employers with a sample checklist to manage occupational health and safety procedures in a workplace. It advises:
how to check if an employee has the skills, training and qualifications needed for their role
how to identify if an employee is familiar with health and safety rules, safe work method statements and specialised equipment
how to check what personal protective equipment an employee needs
ways to explain incident reporting, security and emergency procedures and the role of health and safety representatives
If your employee's first language is not English, you must use an interpreter.
