How can I induct new staff into my business?

Take your time to introduce your new employee to your workplace and their job. An induction checklist will help you remember the important things to cover during the induction. These include:
– paperwork, such as completing an employee details form
– rosters, time sheets, and applying for Leave
– terms and conditions of employment – position description and employment contract
– farm policies and systems (see Safety for more information)
– a copy of The Fair Work Information Statement and The National Employment Standards Introduction (See Awards section for more information)
– OH&S procedures
– farm tour and general information
– introductions to farm staff (explaining their roles and responsibilities), contractors, suppliers, owners and management
– a walk-through of specific job tasks
– a copy of the farm’s Code of Conduct

If you are engaging someone as an independent contractor, you need to manage the risks to their health and safety as you would for any other person working on your farm. Use the Contractors Checklist as a check for yourself and an induction for the contractor.
