When you start work, you will have certain responsibilities to your employer, your colleagues and yourself. Each workplace will be different, but we've listed below some of the things you will need to do in most jobs:
Always arrive on time, be reliable, and turn up each working day. If you are going to be late for any reason, 'phone your employer to let them know.
Check what arrangements you need to make to let your employer know if you are unwell. You will usually need to 'phone the employer before your normal working time to let them know you are not coming to work. If you are too ill to let your employer know, arrange for someone responsible to do this for you.
Ask for help if you are unsure of what you are being asked to do at work. It's better to ask now than to make a mistake later on.Use common sense and don't put yourself or others in danger.
Remember to take a responsible attitude to the health and safety of yourself and colleagues.
Show an interest in your work - ask questions about the job, get to know your colleagues and contribute to the team.
