Organisations should provide training to people who are new to the organisation, new to a particular part of that organisation or to identify major changes that have been made within the organisation to employees. This form of training is referred to as induction training.

Training is a key process in the management of workplace risk and the control of workplace hazards. There is evidence to suggest that people are most at risk when first entering a new work environment; induction training helps reduce this risk and exposes them to the culture of the organisation. This is important, since the first impressions that people have of an organisation will shape their subsequent attitudes and behaviour.

This topic advises on what should be included in induction training, as well as the planning, methods and evaluation of the induction.
