The Health and Safety Act 2005 is the main legislation governing health and safety in the workplace. It requires employers to take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure the health and safety of their employees and others who may be affected by their work.

The Staff Induction Training Program has a number of benefits to the employer & employee, including:

  • Reduced operational downtime: By training new employees on manual handling and fire safety, the employer can reduce the risk of accidents and injuries, which can lead to operational downtime. This self paced option allows staff members to study in their own time either at work or at home saving the hassle of organising additional cover to maintain your operation.  

  • Cost-effectiveness: The self-paced training program is a cost-effective way to train new or existing employees. 

  • Comfort of completing the course in your home or office: The self-paced training program allows new or existing employees to complete the training at their own convenience, in the comfort of their own home or office. This course is available for 4 weeks after joining which can be reduced if required.

  • Overall, the Staff Induction Training Program is a valuable resource for employers who want to ensure that their new employees are trained on manual handling and fire safety in a cost-effective and convenient way.
