Inducting new workers

All new workers are required to complete the University's online Work Health and Safety Induction training within their first week at work. This is available via CareerPath and usually only takes 15 - 20 minutes to complete.

All managers are also required to provide a specific local WHS induction and relevant task specific training for the staff, students, affiliates and volunteers working under their supervision.

Training Needs Analysis

University managers and supervisors are required to periodically review and analyse the WHS training requirements for each member of their team. This is commonly referred to as a training needs analysis. Individual training needs must be considered and planned for as part of the local induction process for new workers, during ongoing performance and development reviews and when planning to commence a new hazardous activity or process.

The University’s WHS Training Needs Analysis Template can be used to record the required training needs of a small team or workgroup and visually monitor progress towards the completion of the required training.
