This workshop will explore participants’ experiences with safety incentive programs, injury discipline/“accident repeater” policies, and behavior-based safety observation. The common thread is blaming workers for so-called “unsafe behaviors” rather than eliminating hazardous conditions. We’ll examine the pitfalls of these programs and discuss strategies for preventing and ending them.
