The Ultimate Guide to Safety Orientation

Team Safesite


Last Updated: April 1, 2021

The first day of a new job — there’s no feeling like it! But you never dive straight into a new role, no matter how experienced you are. Every new employee must go through employee health and safety orientation, a program that introduces the new worker to the company’s policies. 

Health and safety orientation programs provide a lot of information that many workers feel is common sense. But as a safety pro, you never know what a new employee does or doesn’t know. And you know you have site- or facility-specific information to share. So, the orientation provides extra assistance and continuing education during the first few days, weeks, and months of an employee’s tenure.

Are you looking to formalize your company’s new safety orientation training? Or maybe revamp an existing program?

Use Safesite’s guide to health and safety orientation programs to get you started.
