New Employee Onboarding Checklist
By Gabrielle Condon – WHS Consultant for CC Safety (ccsafety.com.au)
Onboarding a new employee can seem a hugely daunting task, particularly for smaller businesses who may not have the staff to manage the often lengthy process. A checklist of all the applicable requirements for your organisation is a must for assisting a smooth transition for a new employee into your business.
Employers have legal obligations to provide information to new employees when they commence work regarding:
- Industrial Relations,
- Worker’s compensation, and
- Work health and safety.
Employers are required to record and report on this information, while also ensuring training and safety information is provided to employees, and incident and injury registers are maintained. Employers must also report to relevant State and Territory regulators for certain Notifiable Incidents.
Employee onboarding and induction checklist
An Employee Onboarding Checklist with related document templates for all these administrative sections of the onboarding process can assist greatly.
It ensures as much information as possible is recorded, scanned and registered, prior to your new employee attending Worksite Orientation and Induction.
Once your employee is physically attending the orientation and induction, a checklist is also a handy guide to work through your obligations, record the policies and procedures given out and discussed, and the employee’s entitlements and obligations as a part of your organisation.
