Reinforcing Induction Messages

It is a legal requirement to ensure that everyone on site is aware of current hazards.

Inductions are a good way to introduce operatives and visitors to the site and explain important safety information.

Daily briefings and hazard boards can be used to reinforce and regularly update these induction safety messages.

For workforce safety reasons, it is also important to consider how many operatives have a good understanding of the basic English language.

To reinforce induction safety messages, on a number of sites:

  • Test questions are posed to all at the induction from the CSCS set of questions;
  • Following their induction, operatives were asked to complete a short assessment to determine how well they understood key points i.e. ‘what is the name of your supervisor, do you require any further training to carry out your work?’

This also helped to establish their understanding of the English language.
