Hiring temporary employees brings many pluses to the table, but sometimes it also brings the challenge of specific experience. Taking the time to correctly training your temp employees will ensure a smooth and safe transition. Here are some ways you can facilitate this training:
Cover company policies
Safety policies are in place for a reason – they help prevent accidents. Explain the company’s safety guidelines, time regulations, and skill set requirements. Clearly state rules, and then actively enforce compliance. When temp employees adhere to the policies, it lessens the accident risk for everyone.
Place priority on “training the team”
When you treat your temp employees as a vital part of the team and train them accordingly, they are more likely to display care, precision, and accuracy in their work. Training temps and then giving them sufficient responsibilities is a great way to ensure they feel like part of the team.
Show and tell
Before your temp employees start working, conduct a walk-through of the work environment. During the “tour,” point out examples of safety hazards. This enables new temp employees to have a visual of what to look out for and be aware of as they perform their daily responsibilities.
You can reduce accidents in the workplace with proper training. Of course, it can be trickier to enforce the same safety policies with temp employees, but you can meet the challenge through education and risk avoidance.
