In these challenging economic times, it is especially important to identify types of incentives that can be used effectively and economically, and to develop an understanding of how incentives can be infused into a safety process.
The “team” concept in a safety process helps to ensure employees’ participation and involvement in the safety effort. However, coaches are needed in the areas of problem-solving, decision-making, time management, resolving conflicts, delegating responsibility and helping to build the lead team and subsequent sub-teams and more.
“Same ole, same ole!” “Same old stuff!”… These are common reactions we receive when we begin our introduction of behavior-based safety at a facility. Employees have seen program after program come and go.
