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?
