What it contains

New workers 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 a worker has the skills, training and qualifications needed for their role
  • how to identify if a worker is familiar with health and safety rules, safe work method statements and specialised equipment
  • how to check what personal protective equipment a worker needs
  • ways to explain incident reporting, security and emergency procedures and the role of health and safety representatives

If your worker’s first language is not English, you must use an interpreter.
