The coronavirus pandemic has had a bigger impact on our lives than we could ever have imagined. The fact that we now have to keep our distance from others in the workplace has hugely impacted daily working life across all industry sectors from construction to health and social care. It is vital for businesses to adapt in order to keep all of their staff and visitors safe, as well as to economically survive this crisis we find ourselves in.
The new reality and ‘normal’ for many businesses will involve increasing the processes that they have digitally accessible. One of these processes will be the occurrence of inductions and ensuring that all coronavirus precautions are taken.
Inductions are an important part of working life, ensuring that all employees, visitors and contractors are able to access your workplace safely and efficiently. Now more than ever it is vital that all health and safety rules are known to keep everyone safe and to ensure that all possible precautions are being taken. No matter the industry that you work in, you will already have your existing golden rules to adhere to, there may now be an increase due to the coronavirus pandemic, so it is now essential and in some places a legal requirement, that everyone visiting your workplace is completely aware of the precautions they will have to take.
The fast-paced nature of construction sites and the focus on health and safety means that site inductions need to be swift yet thorough. Traditional site inductions can be time-consuming and also result in a wealth of paperwork for site managers. Due to the pandemic, it has been suggested that the virus can survive on surfaces such as paper for up to 72 hours. So reducing the need for large amounts of paperwork could be a huge help in keeping everyone present on your site as safe as possible. This is an example of where our completely online induction platform would be perfect! From registering to accessing your site, the whole induction process will be carried out remotely, and you can rest assured that any visitors, employees or contractors will be fully aware of any safety precautions that are in place.
Our online platform is designed to induct your employees, visitors, contractors and suppliers with your bespoke induction prior to them arriving at your premises, making the induction process fully remote. With social distancing in place due to the coronavirus, making your induction process as contactless as possible can have a vast impact on efficiency and streamlining induction tasks.
You can also store all of your important information and documents regarding inductions, and even when an induction is due. This again as mentioned above, can hugely change how much your business relies on paper or other materials which can harbour the virus.
