Employee-Driven Safety: How To Grab Workers' Attention, Harness Their Buy-In, And Achieve Safety Excellence
Achieving safety excellence requires you to involve employees in every aspect of safety—from the initial development of your safety program to their day-to-day performance. If your employees aren’t engaged, you may experience higher rates of work-related injuries and illnesses than you might expect from programs of even the highest quality.
That’s why OSHA strongly recommends that you involve your employees in your safety program. An employee-driven program is also in your company’s best interest, since a reduction in incidents lowers your facility’s chances of winding up on OSHA’s enforcement radar.
Join us for our webinar to learn how to develop, implement, and track the progress of an employee-driven safety program. During the webinar you’ll learn to get senior management, supervisors, and most importantly, the employees, on board with your safety program—so you can take it to the next level.
Register now for this webinar to learn how to get everyone—from senior management to supervisors and most importantly, your employees—to fully engage in your safety program.
