You should never try to start work before you have had training, for a number of reasons. No matter what sort of job you are in, there will be a certain level of training needed to get you up to speed and working well in the position. Just training which shows you how to use the equipment may be necessary, especially if you have done this type of job before for a long time.
However, there may be much more in-depth training needed, and you shouldn’t let your employer allow you to get to work before you have had this training, for your own safety and the safety of others.
- It can be dangerous. If you are trying to start working in a job which has particular risks and hazards, not knowing what these are increases your risk of having an accident. Training will walk you through the risks and hazards of your job, and ensures that you know them before you start.
- You may do something wrong. When you first start in any job you can be expected to get things wrong from time to time. However, if you make huge mistakes which cost the company money or seriously affect a client or customer, you could risk losing your job. Having the correct training first ensures that you don’t make huge mistakes.
- You may teach others to do something wrong. It is easy to pick up how to do something by watching others, and you should be aware that other new employees may be looking to you to see how to do the job. If you are doing it wrong then you just teach them how to do the job badly.
- You may struggle to get the work done. It is frustrating trying to get used to a new job in the first place, but if you don’t really know what you are doing then things will be much slower and more frustrating for you.
