Site inductions are common practice on Australian work sites, as a method of exchanging safety information between Workers and Site Management.
For example, an induction can be used to:
- Provide workers with a copy of the Site WHS Management plan, and
- Ensure workers have the required cards/tickets or qualifications for their activities.
SiteBook’s Site Induction mobile app is free to download.
Personnel arriving on site can download the app, register then step through the site induction on their phone. The site induction process includes:
- Showing the site Safety Management Plan, which must be marked as read and understood by the personnel being inducted
- Providing the site Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS), which must be marked as read and understood by the personnel being inducted
- Collection of relevant cards and tickets including White Cards
- Collection of necessary licenses (High Risk Work Licences, Elevated Work Platform)
- Displaying the Site Notices and Rules (including WHS documents and induction slides)
- Requesting Emergency Contact Details for inductees
- Requiring personnel to Sign-Off on the induction
Upon completion of an induction, a PDF Report is generated, compiling all information along with pictures of cards and tickets.
Site Managers can access the Site Induction Register using the SiteBook Control Centre (web site), or by using the SiteBook mobile app.
The Induction Register shows a list of all workers assigned to the site and their current induction status.
Personnel who have completed a site induction and provided all the relevant qualifications will have a green tick next to their name. While those who haven’t provided the necessary details will have a red warning message.
The Site Induction app is part of an extensive online safety system designed exclusively for Australian Builders and Principal Contractors.
Site Inductions are just one of the features of SiteBook’s safety management system, which also includes site attendance registers, WHS monitoring, and many other essential features for Site Managers.
