Online Safety Community

Our organization has a team of safety monitors, we set goals and measure ourselves against our targets monthly, we review our measurements against the industry, we perform reenactments of incidents, and we use positive reinforcement with a safety recognition program, among other things I'm overlooking I am sure. Still, we are struggling this year with our safety performance, and in fact are having a very rough year.

The recognition program does not seem to have much influence on our outcome, but I fear that implementing disciplinary action will deter employees from reporting incidents and near misses. One thing that might be worth noting is that 79% of our workforce is over age 45. Additionally, we find that over 60% of our TRIR's are a result of inattentiveness. Other root cause categories that we use are inadequate equipment/tools, lack of physical capability, inadequate design, hearing conservation, and unknown.

I am looking for ideas that we might use to enhance our program, get employees motivated to be safe, and overall to improve the program so that less people are getting hurt at work.

At the company I used to work for we implemented a points incentive program, it seemed to work very well. If you reported and CORRECTED a hazardous condition, or near miss you recieved points that could be used towards various prizes that were work related: workwear, car maintenance (have to be able to get back and forth to work), and tools. This worked especially well with the more experienced personell, they really appreciated the acknowledgement for going that extra step. One thing I have tried here recently is encuraging the youger workforce to pick a mentor. The knowledge our more experienced workforce carries is a wealth of information. and the more experienced workers take pride in showing off their abilities to the younger workers. Hope this helps, have a great day!
Thank you Kelley, that is great input. I really like the idea of the points system. I'm going to see if we can give that a try.
Jason,
Thank you for the input. We have tried to have our Sr. Managers hand out snacks to employees performing work in a safe manner, but I am not sure that they are the right people to do it, since they are very busy trying to run the business. Maybe it should be our safety monitors rewarding for safe behaviors. Thanks for the idea!

OVERVIEWEach person is born ethnocentric, or believing that other people and events revolve around them which is generally true for the first few years of a child's life. The focus of activity for a growing child is inward. Some people carry this inward, self-focus into adulthood. These people, so overly concerned with their own well-being in a self-centred way, never learn the secrets of influence. Successful people, who want to have the power of persuasion, turn their circle of activity and…See More
