There’s a list of tasks all employers must do when inducting contractors or employees to a new construction site. Keeping track of every safety and administrative concern can’t be done reliably without proper documentation. That’s where a site induction checklist can ensure all your staff is properly trained in company policy so that you remain in compliance with the occupational health and safety act.

Have Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) been viewed, completed, signed off and match the work that's to be carried out onsite?
Do contractors or employees have appropriate certificates or licenses to carry out work onsite?
