Are online inductions simply no more than just a box-ticking exercise?
Question: Many organisations provide contractor inductions through an online system that the contractor completes before they come on site. Given that a contractor may do a site induction some weeks before attending the site, and have probably attended other worksites and inductions in between, is this a credible way to deliver inductions that would hold up in court? To me it seems like a box-ticking exercise that could easily be interrogated and found inadequate.
