Compliance training: What is the best solution?

Posted by Seline McNamee on Aug 25, 2016 11:37:58 AM

Compliance training is essentially the process of educating new and existing employees on rules, regulations and policies that apply to their job responsibilities and presence onsite.

This is compulsory for all businesses in any industry, but particularly important in hospitality, where health and safety is a constant consideration. Your employees must be fully compliant in order for you to avoid penalties and build consumer trust, as well as keep themselves safe in the workplace.

Every new employee should undergo a thorough and effective compliance training session as part of the induction process. Beyond that, as regulations and the work environment change, all compliance training should be regularly updated.

As we head into the depths of winter, keeping your business fit and healthy is just as important as keeping yourself healthy – no one likes having the 'flu' knock them out!

It seems like a time consuming and costly process, but the costs of not having a system in place can be much higher. Consider injury claims, lost productivity and dissatisfied consumers, all of which can be extremely expensive and have long-reaching consequences. Why take the risk?

How can you maintain compliance?

One of the most difficult factors in the hospitality industry, in terms of maintaining a workplace safety culture of good health and safety, is that most organisations have large staff, members of which work at different times and often locations, meaning it’s difficult to reach the whole staff in a collaborative space.

For that reason, the least expensive and time-consuming way to maintain full compliance in the workplace, and make it a normal part of the workplace culture, is to keep up to date online, which, conveniently, also eliminates the need for disruptive meetings and conferences.

Working online is the easiest and most effective way to stay well-informed of the latest requirements for your industry, involve all employees and share relevant resources. It also means employees can work on maintaining their compliance wherever and whenever it suits them, maximising their use of work time.

For those reasons, Intuto is the perfect online hub for any organisation trying to keep ahead of the game as far as hospitality health and safety requirements go.
