8 Hours



New employees are provided with a comprehensive on-the-job orientation within their first month of providing support; the new employee will participate in no less than twenty-five (25) to thirty (30) ‘shadowing hours’ together with an experienced employee or the Team Leader.

Progress is monitored through the use of an Orientation Checklist. This checklist is reviewed and initiated by the new employee and the person conducting the orientation. The Orientation Checklist serves as confirmation of orientation; moreover, it confirms the employee’s ability to demonstrate their newly acquired skills and information.

After successful completion of a new employee’s orientation, ‘shadowing hours’ and probationary period, employees are enrolled in an Orientation Review to confirm their understanding of organizational philosophy and health and safety protocols.
