When a new employee is hired by a company, there may be a list of things that the employee must complete in order to start working. This can include basic training and safety requirements, but may also include office equipment and personal accounts in a company's computer system, for example. Each employee checklist will differ depending on the company's needs, so make one that suits your company.

Training and Safety

If the employee needs to work with chemical substances, specific equipment and with other potentially dangerous items, the he will need to complete some safety training. On the employee checklist, the safety training section should outline each task the employee must complete in order to operate the equipment or handle chemicals. Examples include cleaning equipment, turning off machines, reading chemical labels and handling chemicals training.


The administrations section under the new employee checklist can include both training tasks and points regarding office assignments. New employees may need to be assigned a cubicle, a computer and a login account for the company's intranet services. Keys, office supplies and business cards may need to be gathered. If the office uses specific software programs or printer systems that require training, these tasks will also be included under the administrative checklist.


Company policies may also be listed on the new employee checklist. This can include the company's holiday policy, sick leave, work environment ethics, harassment policies in the office and discrimination. In order for the new employee to sign the checklist, an existing employer must explain what each of the policies mean and the consequences of not following the policies.


A signature is often required both by the employer responsible for the training and the new employee. The new employee's signature indicates that the employee has understood and completed the training, while the employer's signature indicates the employee's signature is legitimate.
