Numerous companies in the construction industry are realizing the impact of offering safety incentives on bottom line results. Construction companies are able to increase safety compliance and awareness on the jobsite by providing safety awards to workers who complete safety training and reach safety milestones.
Construction employees and contractors work in dangerous jobsite environments every day and the potential for injury not only results in multiple expenses for construction companies but can also cost a person his or her life. Awards Network works with construction companies to create a safety program
that improves safety awareness and compliance while reducing the cost of insurance and worker's compensation claims. Situation:
A construction company decided to start presenting safety awards
to employees who reached specific quarterly safety program goals.Solution:
Monthly jobsite safety training and safety meetings were implemented to help inform employees on how to work safely at various jobsites while keeping them up to date on construction safety issues. Each employee who reached the quarterly safety goals was presented with a custom safety award booklet. As the employees began to redeem the safety awards, management was provided with safety program status reports
, allowing the company to see tangible results of the safety award program without having to perform the day to day administrative functions.Benefits and Results of the Safety Incentive Program:
- Over the course of 3 years, jobsite accidents decreased by 70%
