  2. Store/Site Safety Orientation

    The Orientation is to be reviewed when a contractor arrives on site. The Site orientation can be found with the Sign-In register. It includes:

    • site specific safety information, for example emergency evacuation locations,
    • any new hazards which the contractor would not be aware of through the Contractor General Safety Induction, and
    • site specific safety policies, for example random drug and alcohol testing programs.

    When a contractor has completed the orientation they are required to sign the store log book to acknowledge that they have completed it and understand it.

  3. Industry Specific Inductions

    There are a number of special inductions which may arise out of legislative or industry requirements, such as the construction industry induction. These specific inductions are required in addition to the Contractor General Safety Induction.
