Safety Incentive Programs: How To Encourage Safe Behaviors Without Encouraging Underreporting Or Lawbreaking
|Date / Time:
In March, OSHA released a new enforcement memo entitled "Employer Safety Incentive and Disincentive Policies and Practices."
The memo addresses various concerns about safety incentive and disincentive programs – specifically, that they may violate workers' whistleblower rights and encourage underreporting of incidents.
Don't let your incentive program – designed to make your workplace safer – leave you wide open to OSHA citations (or, even worse, a tragic accident that could have been prevented had the early warning signs been reported).
Join us for an in-depth webinar on this topic you'll learn:
- Key points you need to be aware of in OSHA's new "Employer Safety Incentive and Disincentive Policies and Practices" memo
- Recent National Emphasis Program enforcement activities relating to safety incentive programs gone wrong
- What makes a safety incentive program compliant and effective – and what could potentially make it illegal
- How to encourage safe behaviors without discouraging reporting of accidents and near-misses
- The role of disciplinary programs in incentive/disincentive programs
- GAO's recent recommendations to OSHA for improvements in the area of incentives/disincentives – as well as guidance to inspectors
- Your employees' whistleblower rights guaranteed by federal law – and how to ensure you don't inadvertently violate them
- Safety incentive/disincentive best practices that have worked well for other employers
- Practical tips for making your program a success

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
