Induction Training for the Retail Industry

Induction Training for the Retail Industry

The Retail Industry employs more people than any other industry sector in Australia.

But working in the retail industry can be hazardous, especially when risk factors are combined, including young workers and lack of training or experience.

Retail workers may be at risk from moving vehicles in delivery areas, falling objects, sharp tools, body strains from lifting loads and repetitive lifting or static postures. Workers may also be at risk of encountering abusive customers or criminals attracted to cash or valuables.

Induction Training

New staff are at greater risk of injuring themselves at work than existing staff. For this reason, having a well-structured induction or ‘on-boarding” process in place should have a high priority at any workplace.

Induction training ensures employees learn the right way of doing things from the beginning, minimising the risk of costly mistakes, while increasing productivity.

Employers should also re-train staff returning to work after a long absence in case they’ve forgotten anything while they’ve been away or if you have implemented any new processes.  Also consider the staff that are changing roles (someone moving from sales to the warehouse for example) and ensure they receive work health and safety training if they are using equipment, materials or processes that they are unfamiliar with.
