Many organizations have incentive programs to increase employee engagement. When it comes to safety, we see rewards for “Days Safe” and signs that say, “It has been X days since our last recordable injury.”
In October of 2018, OSHA issued a memorandum clarifying its position on incentive programs, stating specifically that rate-based incentive programs are now permissible—a shift in position from the agency’s earlier stance—as long as they are not implemented in a manner that discourages reporting. But how does OSHA define a program that doesn’t discourage reporting?
Join us on October 15th for a free webinar with Camille Oakes, President and CEO of Better Safety. You’ll learn what constitutes employee engagement and what motivates people when it comes to work and participation, and you’ll gain key insight into OSHA’s position on incentive programs and concrete ways to avoid the perils of underreporting. You’ll learn what makes a successful incentive program and leave with six best practices for incentivizing safety that you can apply in your organization.
After attending the webinar, you’ll be able to:
- Define employee engagement and identify motivation factors
- Apply OSHA’s position on incentive programs to ensure that your programs are compliant
- Identify ways to determine if underreporting is present in your workplace
- Identify the factors that define successful incentive programs and the accompanying performance results
- Recognize leading and lagging indicators and identify the appropriate uses of each
- Apply six essential best practices for incentivizing safety in your organization
