The Human Resource Director
Once Artron has hired a qualified candidate for one of our open positions, Artron provides an onboarding and training process to help employees work safely and effectively. An ongoing induction program helps employees understand not only the functional details of employment, such as proper safety procedures but also the organization's safety culture.
The induction process should include an overview of general facilities, job-related roles, and overall safety culture. For example, employees can learn about the location of emergency exits, eyewash stations, and safety data sheets, and learn about safety-related procedures such as how to report injuries or unsafe conditions.
Whether for new employees or those new to a specific role or task, employers can provide useful on-the-job safety training to promote an organization's overall safety culture. These activities include skills-based and awareness-based training. Skills-Based Training: Demonstrates the hands-on procedures needed to perform a specific task, such as how to safely operate a piece of machinery. Awareness-Based Training: Includes general policies, expectations for maintaining a safe and healthy work environment, and hazard identification. This gives employees tactical knowledge and cultural awareness of why security practices matter.
If there are changes in the operations of the organization, such as producing new products or implementing new machinery and equipment, further onboarding and training or processes may be required. "Continuous induction and training programs identify and respond to new requirements across the IVD industry for employees.

Artron implements an employee retention strategy
The cost of replacing an employee is considerable. These costs include recruitment, selection, on-the-job learning costs, and any separation costs, in addition to any loss of productivity and loss of institutional knowledge. Artron’s induction and training programs help protect the significant time and expense invested in recruiting and hiring new employees.
While some employers only consider new employee onboarding, the process is also important for retaining and engaging employees throughout their employment. Existing employees, whether changing roles or returning to work, can benefit from a safety-focused induction and training program.
