Participation Counts: A Look at Participation-Based Safety

Check out our recent survey and its accompanying report, both sponsored by eCompliance®, to get insight into how safety professionals and their companies are encouraging employees to actively participate in safety initiatives.

The study illustrates the diverse opinions within the safety field regarding such issues as implementing behavior-based vs. participation-based programs, measuring safety participation, and management visibility into safety performance.

The survey of over 500 respondents includes such findings as:

  • 15% of survey participants believe that behavior-based programs have a negative impact on safety culture, and 55% think participation-based safety is most effective.
  • 98% of respondents believe that increasing the level of worker participation in safety will improve safety performance.
  • 14% of survey participants don’t measure safety participation at all, and an additional 10% said that they don’t currently measure participation but plan to begin doing so within the next 12 months.
