Driver Induction Training
Employers need to ensure that all drivers and operators understand company policy and procedure on:
- health and safety;
- use of drugs and alcohol; and
- the penalties for failing to follow instructions and safe working practices.
Health and Safety standards
Think about what you need to tell new employees about the job, for example:
- How are the workplace routes laid out?
- Who is authorised to drive, and where?
- How and where should the worker report faults or hazards?
- How should they report accidents and near misses?
- What daily, weekly and monthly checks should they make?
- What particular risks are there in your workplace?
- What can they do to reduce or eliminate these risks?
- Do drivers and operators need personal protective equipment, such as high-visibility clothing, head protection, driver restraints, safety boots, and equipment to prevent falls?
- Do they know where protective, safety, and first aid equipment is kept, and when and how to use it?
- If English is not their first language, how will you make sure they understand the instructions you give them?
