When your company hires new workers, it is in your interest to do everything possible to retain them as they become a valuable asset.
A successful retention strategy must begin the moment a new employee is hired. It is estimated that one out of every five employees will quit within their first year of employment. Nearly 20 percent of those who resign will leave during their first 45 days. Developing a successful induction program is one of the simplest and smartest strategies an employer can use to successfully limit loss and build long-term loyalty among employees.
In any case in the UK it is a regulatory requirement to do so. The HSE states that all new recruits or those changing roles need basic induction training in how to work safely, including arrangements for first aid, fire and evacuation as covered under section 10 of the Management of Health and Safety Regulations 1999
A good Induction sets the scene for the inductee’s new role, part of the induction process is to introduce the new employee to the organisational setup and the Health and Safety provisions / expectations within the organisation.
To aid in the above EC Safety Solutions have developed an electronic induction process which is available to all our retained clients for a small additional fee
The induction form covers all the required elements to ensure full compliance and to help your staff get off to the best possible start with the right company information.
Our new induction process allows you to demonstrate that your organisation has the following procedures in place:
The induction process starts with a short animated video that we have developed that raises awareness on the requirements for COSHH Awareness, Manual Handling, Display Screen Equipment, Housekeeping, Emergency Procedures and more.
The images below are screen shots of the 7 minute induction video we have developed to inform and instruct your staff on the known workplace hazards:
Once completed the induction questionnaire is saved as a PDF document and stored on your client portal for future refrence and is sent to the named resposible person within the organisation.
