Using Incentives to Engage and Motivate Your Workers (Compliantly)

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?

It Could Happen Here: 2019 Workplace Disasters and the Risks to Your Organization

As safety professionals, we pay close attention to newsworthy workplace disasters. Just this year, 2019 has had many workplace disasters including explosions at refineries, crane collapses, and confined space tragedies. It’s easy to assume that these types of tragic incidents could not occur in your organization – after all, you have a strong safety culture and plenty of policies and procedures and training in place.

You may witness shortcuts and quick fixes taken by employees and supported by leadership. This proves that there is room for improvement to help mitigate future risks.
