You might think that using incentives and rewards for safety improvement is good, but OSHA has repeatedly made their position clear: safety incentive programs that punish employees for getting injured are unacceptable.
So how do you utilize a Safety Incentives/Rewards Program that doesn't run afoul of OSHA, which believes that most incentive programs are nothing more than "blame the worker" programs because they "punish workers for reporting injuries", and they "reward workers for not reporting injuries"?
Well...if your organization is one of the thousands that have a Safety Incentive Program in place, you'll need to know what's acceptable, as well as what needs revising/updating, and that is where this training session can help!
This training session discusses how to develop a new - or revise an existing - Incentive/Reward Program that will help you promote positive safety behaviors in your workers - and stand up to OSHA scrutiny!
By attending this training session, you and your co-workers will learn:
