OHS Induction and Training

Principals and school staff must follow the OHS Induction and Training Policy, OHS Induction and Training Procedure and Resource section which are available in the Policy and Advisory Library (PAL).

Corporate and regional staff should follow the information below

Training starts at induction when an employee or contractor commences work. Every role within the department has certain OHS responsibilities, each requiring particular levels of competency.

We must identify those competencies and ensure that our employees not only understand the Department's expectations, but also, that they have the training necessary to competently meet those responsibilities.

The provision of adequate information, instruction and training in a structured and timely manner will ensure employees and contractors understand their health and safety obligations and that they are competent to perform tasks associated with their roles safely.

This section contains procedures and forms to assist workplace managers to identify training requirements specific to their workplace and operating environment.

For more information on contractor induction, see: Contractor OHS Management. Note: this is only applicable to contractors' performing works. e.g., electrician or plumber on site.

The OHS eLearn Program Guide (featured in Table below) provides detailed advice to employees on the OHS eLearning modules and programs available on the department’s Learning Management System (LearnED). It contains information on completion, recording and monitoring requirements and lists further supports available to staff when using the LearnED platform
