Onboarding in the workplace

Training difficulties

  • Transferring the knowledge of experienced employees to trainees takes longer than expected.

  • Experienced employees struggle to explain their visual patterns at work.

  • Difficulty teaching staff to be more pro-active in patrol and equipment inspection.

Faulty equipment inspection

Faulty equipment

  • Varying inspection techniques between staff result in inconsistent completion times and faulty equipment going unnoticed.

  • There is no consistent and optimized strategy for checking equipment functionality. 

  • Newcomers recognize abnormalities less often than experienced workers resulting in the need for further supervision.  

  • Equipment is out of action for too long due to small unnoticed faults becoming worse over time.

Inspection - safety worker

Safety, quality, efficiency issues

  • Poor inspection techniques are causing a safety hazard.

  • Patrols and inspections need to be redone at extra effort and cost.
