Are Your Employees On Board?

In the article, “Employee Onboarding: Where Safety & HR Meet” from the latest issue of ASSE's Human Resources (HR) Branch's publication HR Solutions, Trent Shuford explains how employee “onboarding” goes beyond standard new hire procedures to educate and integrate employees into an organization by introducing them to policies, procedures, personnel, rules, traditions and anything else that governs work activities.

According to Shuford, safety onboarding involves introducing employees to the organization’s occupational safety and health policies and procedures to prevent work-related injuries and illnesses.

How does your organization help bring new employees “on board” when it comes to safety?
