Induction Essentials



Unlike other induction courses, this qualification aims to give fundamental training to new starters, or to update existing employees’ training, in essential areas such as rights and responsibilities, manual handling, health and safety, fire safety and DSE risk assessment. This programme can also be personalised to your business.


The induction programme is split into five core areas, but but it can be tailored with a range of additional bolt-ons if you wish to cater it to your employees. This programme includes:

Section 1: Right and responsibilities

Within this section, your employees will gain knowledge about the rights and responsibilities of both an employee and an employer. It also covers employment law and the Employment Rights Act.

Section 2: Health and safety

In this section, your employees will gain an understanding of employers' and employees' duties relating to health, safety and welfare. It covers the requirements for training and competence, and communicating health and safety information.

Section 3: Fire safety principles

This section covers how to identify different causes of fires in the workplace, understand the hazards during and after fires and understand the characteristics of fire and smoke spread.

Section 4: DSE risk assessment

In this section, your employees will develop their understanding of the reasons for conducting DSE risk assessments, problems that may occur when working with DSE and the legal requirements that come under health and safety legislation.

Section 5: Manual handling

This section explores efficient and safe manual handling principles, including moving a load manually on your own, good handling techniques and using manual handling aids and equipment. Your employees will also consider ill health associated with incorrect manual handling, the employers' and employees' duties and the possible consequences for non-compliance with health and safety requirements.
