C.A. Short Company offers OSHA compliant safety incentive programs. How do you build a properly structured program?
Safety incentive programs reinforce safety protocols and encourage employees to work safely by rewarding them when they do. To build a successful safety incentive program, you must have a way to consistently measure success, as well as discover any areas of improvement.
Safety incentive programs seem like a lot of work from an administrative perspective. How much time should someone dedicate to their program?
C.A. Short Company understands that safety programs can often take too much time to manage. Our program, Safegagement™, was designed to reduce your administrative and management time. You only need to spend 30 minutes inside our platform a month.
What is Safegagement™?
OSHA® encourages employers to find creative ways to incentivize safe work practices and accident-prevention measures. C.A. Short Company presents a new way of OSHA® Compliance with Safegagement™.
Safegagement™ occurs when engaged employees are safer at work and make better decisions because they care about those they work with, the company they work for, and the overall accomplishments of the organization. With a safety incentive program, you will raise engagement, reduce accidents, and increase your bottom line.
What key performance indicators (KPIs) can a safety program affect?
Our behavior-based programs can assist you in measuring and awarding employees for leading indicators. KPIs vary by industry, but it is important to create measurable KPI’s that are credible and predictive. C.A. Short uses a Shared Risk Shared Reward Model, meaning you only purchase points for your program when goals and KPIs are accomplished.
What is the most used type of recognition for safety professionals?
Recognizing employees monthly versus annually has proven to be the most effective way to achieve positive results. Our platform gives you the ability to easily recognize employees each month for leading indicators such as:
- Safety Suggestions
- Safety Audits
- Reporting Near Misses
- Proper Use of PPE
Can a safety incentive program support ongoing safety education?
Our People Are Everything employee recognition platform is completely configurable to meet your program needs. Our interactive modules are often used for safety trainings and quizzes as well as reporting near-misses.
What rewards can employees redeem for?
Our programs include thousands of name brand awards to choose from, including DeWalt, Bose, Bushnell, Garmin, & Oakley. And the award is shipped directly to the recipient’s home address. We also have a multitude of experiential and virtual offerings, as well.
