Shop Safety: Offer an Incentive Program
Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019
As another new year rolls around, you may be doing some safety assessments around your shop, looking both for successes and areas where you can improve.
One important thing to address is the number of injuries or accidents that occurred in your shop in 2018. Was it more than the prior year? Or did you decrease injury rates by a significant number this year compared to last year?
If you’re seeing more accidents or near-misses and finding that injury rates are rising, or if you just want to get a better handle on workplace safety, you might consider an incentive program that rewards your staff when injury rates are low. It doesn’t have to break the bank or be extravagant. Keep in mind, though, that OSHA has regulations in place regarding workplace safety incentive programs.
