How successful safety incentive programs reduce injuries without injury hiding

How successful safety incentive programs reduce injuries without injury hiding | OHS-contentious or unquestionable? | Scoop.it
Elizabeth Scarlett Fleming's insight:

I believe that an effective safety incentive program is vital.

In the particular town that I live in, one of the major companies working here has just recently rewarded it's staff with a "One million man hours without an LTI" key ring. Nobody, goes to work and thinks "I'm going to be extra careful today so maybe in a few months time I'll get a free key ring!" and that is why I believe a safety incentive program with an actual REWARD would benefit many companies because it gives the employees an extra something to work towards.
