Mandatory induction program

 Mandatory induction program


Mandatory induction relates to components of induction that must be delivered to all new employees, including casuals, to ensure compliance with legislation and policy. Employees should revise components of mandatory induction on an annual basis as per the Mandatory Annual Training - Ready Reckoner (PDF, 315KB), to ensure that they are aware of any changes to policy and legislation that affect their work.

These mandatory programs can be delivered in a face-to-face capacity during staff meetings or via online courses. Those responsible for planning and delivering induction may choose delivery methods that best suit their employees and must ensure all staff has completed the appropriate programs. When any mandatory induction program is delivered in a face-to-face capacity, it is essential for line mangers to ensure that assessment activities as included are undertaken to verify employee understanding and to capture their local record of participation.

Asbestos awareness and management

Asbestos Awareness provides information to employees in departmental workplaces where there is confirmed and/or assumed asbestos-containing material (ACM). Asbestos management team (AMT) training is also provided for staff assigned as an AMT member responsible for the management of ACMs in department-owned facilities. Refer to the Asbestos management website for more information.

Employees should complete emergency management and fire safety training at their workplace to take into account the local context.

​Director-General's message - Preventing fraud and corruption

The department is committed to excellence in service performance and in meeting our statutory obligations. This includes maintaining a fraud and corruption prevention culture. We have zero tolerance for fraud and corruption.

The Fraud and Corruption Control Framework sets out the standard of accountability and transparency expected of all employees. It is essential that everyone is familiar with the framework to assist with preventing and detecting fraud and corruption. It is also mandatory to undertake Internal Controls training.

Our organisational values and culture, governance and risk management frameworks, and controls work together to prevent, detect and respond to potential or actual fraudulent or corrupt conduct.

Fraud and corruption prevention and a commitment to ethical behaviour is required of every employee. It is my expectation that each of you will commit to our zero-tolerance policy, and take personal responsibility to comply with the fraud and corruption control responsibilities set out in the Framework.
