Your first day on the job is often spent orientating yourself, finding out about your new role, and learning workplace policies. Most employers are great at making sure you have the information you need, such as the name and location of your nearest first aider and who to go to if you have an accident or spot something that you think is dangerous.
Just in case there are any holes in your knowledge, we’ve put together a short First Day Checklist to help you keep this new information in one place.
If there are any questions on the checklist you can’t answer, then don’t forget to ask your manager!
Top Tip: Ask questions.
When meeting new people, it can sometimes be intimidating to ask questions. Remember, there’s no such thing as a stupid question when it comes to safety, so if you’re unsure of something, don’t be afraid to speak up. Who knows, it might just save your life!
