Induction Process<br />Induction programmes must be suited to the individual’s needs. It is necessary to plan carefully<br />and prepare induction programmes with consideration to specific areas appropriate to each<br />individual. <br />Examples of considerations which may be relevant to induction planning include:<br />Prior experience of the workplace – for example, this may be the new employee’s first job since leaving school; the new employee may be returning to work after a career break; or they may have gained their work experience in a different setting.<br />The nature of the role the new employee will be carrying out and the working relationships that will need to be developed with colleagues in own and other departments.<br />Adjustments that may need to be made with regards to the special needs of, for example, employees with a disability.<br />These are just a few examples. The specific needs of the new employee can be determined during<br />and after the recruitment process and be part of the preparation that is undertaken before the<br />New employee joins the company. <br />
Induction Process<br />It is important to introduce the new employee to their new workplace and colleagues at the<br />earliest opportunity. An introductory talk will be appropriate at this time combined with general<br />information and the exchange of necessary documentation. This talk should be brief as the<br />employee is unlikely to be favourable to detailed information at this time. Time must be set aside<br />at a later date for this process.<br />A tour of the workplace should be arranged to allow the new employee to view the organisation as a whole and to see how he or she fits into the overall picture.<br />The new member of staff will want to get to know his or her colleagues quickly and become part of the team and time should be allowed for this to happen. Colleagues should be briefed on the new employee’s arrival and, if possible, one member of the department should be nominated to make sure that the new employee has every assistance in settling in quickly.<br />Although the new employee will want to start work as soon as possible, it is vital that enough time is given to the induction process and that he/she is not booked up with anything which will prevent attendance on the designated induction day or induction meetings.<br />
Safety Procedures<br />When using the studio please follow these simple rules.<br />NEVER MOVE ANYTHING BY YOURSELF. A lot of the equipment in the studio is large and heavy. If any equipment needs moving avoid back strain or other bodily harm by working with a partner.<br />NEVER MOVE ANYTHING IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUS INJURIES. If you have pre-existing back injuries, other physical injuries, or health issues that may be aggravated by moving an object, notify a supervisor or manager and do not move anything. If you choose to move equipment knowing you have these issues, you do so voluntarily, and the Studio and staff, are free of liability.<br />FOLLOW ALL SAFETY DEMO INSTRUCTIONS FOR LIFTING AND MOVING OBJECTS. Follow the safety instructions given in the induction. This will decrease the risk of injury. If proper lifting and moving techniques are not followed, the Studio and staff are free of liability.<br />Other Rules<br />Keep all food and drink in the designated areas. Food is banned from the studio work area. Food causes distractions and may cause hazards if dropped or spilled.<br />Keep all exits free of obstruction and keep belongings in a designated area out of the way in the studio area. We don’t want anyone tripping over belongings and we always need a clear path to the exits.<br />If a fire occurs go to and assemble at the designated area.<br />Each employee in the workplace must abide by the safety rules and regulations.<br />Any hazards noticed in the workplace should be reported to a supervisor or the manager.<br />Any incidents that occur in the workplace must be reported and documented.<br />
