What is Induction Management?

Many organizations require their employees and guests (visitors and contractors) to be aware of their health & safety and security policies, as well as the correct and approved procedures for undertaking or controlling tasks and jobs.

There are various methods for educating, informing, and ensuring people know and understand these policies and operating procedures. In many cases formal 'induction' or 'eLearning' courses are employed as part of a wider health and safety and security set of practices.

These 'courses' can be delivered via PowerPoint, paper-based course booklets, show and tell site walk-throughs, video, or more commonly via the use of external 3rd party induction programs. One of the common issues with these options is their lack of integration with any site presence tools - the organization can not ensure they have been inducted or the have the right skills to be doing a specific task.

WhosOnLocation's Induction Management makes it easy to maintain induction records, regardless of how the 'course' or 'eLearning' element was delivered. Furthermore, you can control access to any location should these courses not be completed or they have expired - simply by setting up rules with our Triggers feature.

There are three types of induction courses within WhosOnLocation - WOL eLearning, Internal, and External.
