We have a competency to be completed within the first 30 days of employment.
It covers everything I could think of that is required of them. They only
sign off when they feel comfortable with the procedure. There are different
levels to the competency, some is just talking about the procedure, others
include actual hands on/watching them perform. This is also done yearly.
Hope it helps!

Subject: [Histonet] New employee training

Hi Folks, I'm hoping someone out there will be willing to help me get
started on a new project.
The Histology lab I began  working at recently has no formal
training/orientation for new employees. The most recent hospital-wide
employee satisfaction survey cited poor training for new employees as a
major complaint in many departments.
It seems that there are techs who refuse to share what they know with
others. I don't know if it's a job security issue or just "knowlege is
power" or whatever....
Anyway, I am trying to formulate a new employee orientation checklist
for new Histotechs coming into the department. Does anyone out there
have something like this and would they mind sharing it with me, just to
give me an idea how in-depth I need to go.
