A site induction plays a significant role in familiarising new and returning workers with the site-specific rules and instructions. It covers everything from working hours to the location of emergency facilities, the use of personal protective equipment, equipment and tool handling procedures, and more.
During the induction, new workers are educated on the risks and hazards associated with the site’s environment. These may include hazardous chemicals, heavy machinery, electrical installations, and potential health risks.
The site induction is an essential part of any construction or industrial project, and it is a legal requirement in many countries. The process ensures that workers have the necessary information and training to work safely and minimise the risks of accidents and injuries.
