Where Rewarding Safe Behavior Goes Horribly Wrong!
I found this video over the weekend and thought I would share. It can be used to lighten the mood at a safety meeting or event. While employee safety is never a laughing matter, the video shows how a safety incentive program can sometimes cause more harm than good. Introducing this topic and developing a proactive reward system can lead to better reporting of hazards and near misses. This should, in turn, lead to a reduction of both minor and serious injuries on the job. A big thank you to the folks at MadTV for creating this skit.
