Description:

An effective safety program can only exist if you have enough employee buy-in. This requires that safety managers strike the right balance between rewarding and reinforcing positive safety performance while addressing negative performance through a formal discipline process. Achieving that balance can be tricky in the context of both employees and OSHA.

Whenever incentives are being used, it’s important that you don’t misstep. OSHA’s belief is that, although an incentive program may intend to reward positive safety performance, it may also discourage the reporting of injuries and illnesses. OSHA is tuned in to the inherent flaws in many incentive-based programs and has directed inspectors to look closely at them when appropriate.

When structured properly, disciplinary programs and incentive programs can play a positive role in helping to gain employee buy-in of safety policies. The critical question is, how should you structure your programs to achieve overall success and remain legally compliant?

Join us for an in-depth webinar that will walk you through the top legal traps and proven best practices. Our presenter, seasoned safety lawyer Barry S. Spurlock, will outline a proven blueprint for structuring your safety incentive and disciplinary programs so your company can reach its performance goals and effectively reduce risks.

You’ll learn:

  • Protection Programs, safety incentives and disincentives, and inspector guidance on these issues
  • Where OSHA enforcement of incentive programs stands in light of the anti-retaliation provisions of the most recent Final Rule on
  • Injury & Illness Recordkeeping
  • Why it’s important to understand the interplay between OSHA’s position on incentive and disciplinary programs and its national emphasis and whistleblower protection program
  • The key parts of a compliant and legally defensible safety incentive and disciplinary program
  • Practical ways to use incentives based on key safety performance/activity indicators to improve safety performance
  • Potential violations, citations, and legal consequences that could result from incentive and disciplinary program non-compliance
  • What’s worked—and what hasn’t—for other organizations seeking to achieve a favorable response from employees and improved safety performance
  • How to tell if existing and future incentive and disciplinary programs are not only compliant but are designed to have a positive impact on your overall safety program
