Employee-Driven Safety: How To Grab Workers' Attention, Harness Their Buy-In, And Achieve Safety Excellence

Webinar: ID# 1001764
About This Course:
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.

Learning Objectives:
  • Evaluate your existing safety culture to identify whether you have an environment that supports employee involvement or blocks participation
  • Review approaches and processes that other organizations have used successfully to increase employee involvement
  • Document the “gaps” identified in your program
  • Obtain candid suggestions for addressing those “gaps” from all levels of the organization
  • Encourage employee involvement using surveys, interviews, meetings, and team-building exercises
  • Use data on employee engagement to develop a plan to improve safety culture
  • Establish plan milestones to enable continuous performance tracking
  • Prevent a falling-off of employee engagement as the program continues
  • Incorporate the program into your facility’s day-to-day operations
  • Use feedback to ensure continuous employee engagement
  • Utilize standing committees or teams to further engage employees
  • Involve the union during the process as effectively as possible
  • Find outside resources for developing and implementing your program, and more!
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.
