Worx Safety

You can find all the answers here if you need them

Why do we need an induction system?

The Work Health and safety Regulation 2017 contains the following clauses:

[34] “A duty holder, in managing risks to health and safety, must identify reasonably foreseeable hazards that could give rise to risks to health and safety.”

[39] “The person must ensure that information, training and instruction provided to a worker is suitable and adequate..”


“The person must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that the information, training and instruction provided under this clause is provided in a way that is readily understandable by any person to whom it is provided.”

What this means is that if you are the owner of a business, it is a requirement that you have a system in place to make your workers aware of the hazards as well as any controls that are in place to reduce them.

This is also required to be in a format that is easy to understand. A video induction meets both these requirements.

Does this comply with workcover / WHS requirements?


As above, our system meets the requirements of providing a training system for employees and contractors while also being in a readily understandable format.

Our standard inductions provide training in all of the generic hazards associated with most work environments. If there are additional hazards in your workplace, these must be addressed in your inductions.

What happens if my employee has an accident and we can't show an induction process?

If you have an incident that is investigated and you are unable to show that you have met the requirements in the WHS Regulations, you can be fined up to $6,000 as an individual, or $30,000 as a company.

Why is your system any better than others?

There are many ways that you can meet the requirements stated in the Regulations. A very common approach is a paper based system. Whilst such a system does meet the requirements, it can be very hard to manage (think sheets of paper spread across multiple site offices).

There are also some high end corporate versions of induction software that you can buy. These are great for companies with 100 or more staff and someone to manage the system.

The Worx Safety platform was created specifically for small businesses. We have spent many years owning and working in small businesses and we understand how things work and what is important.

We have included everything that is needed to maintain a simple induction system, and nothing more.

Our platform is accessible anywhere with an internet connection, so you never again have to chase down the 12 signed bits of paper from Tuesday’s induction - the record is on your phone with 3 taps.

Can I add my own inductions?


We provide the platform for delivering the induction, you can provide the information.

Whether it is video, powerpoint, word documents or audio files, we can set these up in your online platform for employees to review.

We can also add quizzes to test your employee understanding based on your information.

I don't have time to create, can we use a template induction?

Yes, we have standard inductions available that cover the hazards in both an office environment as well as a site or construction environment.

Note that you are still required to address any additional hazards that are present in your workplace that are not covered in our standard inductions.

We can help with creating your inductions - just contact us to discuss.

How secure is our data?

Our information is securely stored and encrypted within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) data center located in the ap-southeast-2 region, specifically in Sydney NSW, Australia. We also utilize a global points-of-presence network to deliver fast and reliable experience to users anywhere in the world. Our data center provider complies with top certifications, including ISO27001, AICPA SOC 2 and 3, PCI DSS, and HIPAA.

The Worx Safety application prioritises robust security measures to safeguard user data. The entire application is encrypted with SSL, ensuring a secure environment for data transmission. User authentication is facilitated through the use of cookies, and session IDs, crucial for identifying user connections, are stored in HTTPS-only cookies, inaccessible to JavaScript. See our data protection policy here.

Do I need special skills to manage this system?

Our system has been built from the ground up to be as simple as possible, while still meeting the requirements of the WHS Regulations.

After watching our straight forward help videos, you should be able to run the system without any help. We suggest less than an hour of familiarisation and training is required for the person(s) nominated as company admins.

Note that we are available by phone, email or chat if you do need support with anything.

Will this take extra resources to manage?

Our experience is that it will actually take significantly less resources from your company to manage your safety and induction system once you have our system on board.
