We believe that there is a real payback on motivation and performance from a rewards-based safety incentive plan. However, that is only one element in our overall safety and health program. Our greater goal is to provide training combined with incentives and individual employee recognition, to improve overall performance and safety thus having a substantial long term impact of reducing accidents in the workplace. The following five components of our program have been the key to our employee buy in of the program and its success:
- A properly functioning and complete program
- Ongoing examination of safety performance
- Support of management with pro-active participation and recognition
- Structured incentive program with clearly defined goals
- Ongoing communication with rewards tailored to motivate and fit the work force.
