Introduction: Induction management

Learn about induction management in WhosOnLocation. You can record when employees or contractors complete an internal or external induction course or deliver a course online or through an on-site induction kiosk. 

About inductions

Many organizations require their employees and contractors to be aware of their health and safety and security policies, as well as the correct and approved procedures for undertaking or controlling tasks and jobs. Formal induction or eLearning courses are often employed as part of wider health and safety and security practices.

There are many options for delivering induction courses, including PowerPoint, paper-based course booklets, site walk-throughs, video, or more commonly through the use of external third-party induction programs.

The induction management add-on makes it easy to maintain induction records, regardless of how the course was delivered. You can set up notifications so you're alerted when courses are expiring, or set up triggers to deny access if an employee or contractor hasn't completed a course or if it expires.

Types of courses

There are four types of induction courses in WhosOnLocation:

  • Internal – courses are presented by someone in your organization. This course type is used to manually record the date employees and/or contractors completed the course and track the next renewal date.
  • External – courses presented by someone outside your organization. This course type is used to manually record the date employees and/or contractors completed the course and track the next renewal date.
  • WOL eLearning – create a course using our induction builder to deliver it online, or through an on-site induction kiosk. WhosOnLocation tracks when the course is completed, the number of attempts the learner has made, and when the course expires. 
  • SCORM Cloud – If you've created a SCORM course in a separate authoring tool, you can set up the SCORM Cloud integration to deliver your course online, or through an on-site induction kiosk. WhosOnLocation tracks when the course is completed, the number of attempts the learner has made, and when the course expires.
