OHSE & Induction system

Rapid Induct

All contractors, consultants and suppliers will be invited by their La Trobe Project Manager or Works Co-ordinator to register with Rapid Induct. Rapid Induct is the University's OHS&E contractor management system used to ensure all contractors, consultants, suppliers and their employees meet and maintain compliance with University and legislative requirements.

Your company is required to complete the Rapid Induct registration process. To do this you will need to:

  • assign a Company Administrator. (An invitation to register will be sent to the Company Administrator)
  • create a Rapid Induct account and verify your company name and ABN
  • answer a series of OHS&E questions and upload mandatory documents

Once Latrobe University has reviewed and verified your company's status, a password will be issued to your chosen administrator. The administrator will then provide individual employees with passwords.

Contractors, consultants and suppliers must sign in and out every day, however contractors working on closed sites may be exempt due to site specific sign in and out procedures.
