The real issue with safety in my humble opinion is that CSP's and the like are so detatched from whats happening on the deck plates. You know where the knuckles (meat) the steel. Ask yourself this. Do I really know whats going on out there? How can I run a successful program if I don't?

We tie the incentives to activities designed to prevent injuries, near miss reporting, hazard identification, getting caught "doing it right", training, etc... We also provide tickets for injury free months but it is not the focus of the program. In the end, it is the mangement of any program that determines success or failure as apposed to the structure or incentives themselves.

We use our incentive funding not for prizes at all; rather we believe the money is better spent marketing safety to the employees through training lunches. We teach safety as a value and preach the enportance of family. We believe in safe production as a way of life. Our number have emproved by 60%.

Anytime you tie an incentive program to injuries, you are encouraging employees to not report. Removing prizes/rewards for injuries is punitive in nature. I believe a reward and recognition program should be positive all the way around. We are currently looking at implementing an R&R program based on safe work behaviors. Employees have more opportunity to get entered into the drawings by reporting hazards, near misses, wearing ppe, correcting hazards. Supervisors will have their own R&R program which will be based on department housekeeping, weekly safety audits, employee training participation and documentation etc. I am also looking at a departmental "spirit stick" type of program based on all the above criteria where each department competes for bragging rights monthly.
I agree with the comment on the safety jackpot. Sorry I looked into it and found its expensive and the "prizes" are pretty cheesy in my opinion.

Like you mentioned, we also offer a dinner for the plant for every 30 days we add to our injury free run. We run the jackpot program in parrallel with the meal incentive.

Yeah it's tricky. Jerimee said that they offer incentives for near miss and first aid cases as well. So, that would encourage employees to report safety violations or accidents if they see them. I still think an overall prize or award is a good idea. It's hard to say what works best across the board though. Does anyone else have any suggestions that work?
Comment by Randy on February 24, 2010 at 10:16am
Christie, very good comment, this has been in the news lately. So what can you do? What is everyone else doing? We currently award prizes and tickets if you are caught working safe. But if there is an Recordable the program stops for a month and the end of year prizes are reduced. So I guess the question is does the presure of knowing you could screw it up for everyone cause you to wear your PPE, work safe and use the correct tools OR does it cause you not to report accidents???
Comment by Christie Mendola on February 24, 2010 at 10:13am
Yeah, that's a good idea too. I think the key is developing a reward/incentive program that covers all the bases.
Comment by Jerimee Bortner on February 24, 2010 at 10:11am
We also provide incentives for reported near miss and first aid cases to try to prevent injury hiding.
Comment by Christie Mendola on February 24, 2010 at 10:04am
I know this is an old conversation but I just recently joined Safety Community and wanted to comment. In some companies they offer food parties or some kind of recognition if the company goes X number of days without an accident, for example. But, this is a double- edged sword. While recognizing a group for safe practices is a positive thing, it might also cause employees to not to report incidents if they think it will ruin the "award" for everyone else. Just some food for thought...

So, any business that wants to market combination products into the US or the EU must be completely aware of the nature and meaning of all the regulations. Such businesses…See More
