I know… your employees should practice and implement safety measures without you having to 'bribe' them. But, sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures. Especially when your incidents are on the rise and its costing you a fortune in COID claims and downtime.

Would you pay your workers to review your health and safety procedures?

After all, you must investigate every incident that occurs at your workplace. What better way to educate your employees about the safety procedures you have in place, than by asking them to assist you to find the holes in your safety processes?

But if your number of fatalities and injuries is one the rise, this may be a solution to prevent large-scale incidents. What do you think? Let me know at louise@fsp.co.za.

And now that I've got you thinking about incidents in your workplace… here's a quick refresher of your employees duties when it comes to health and safety…

  3. Take reasonable care of themselves while on duty. Including using their PPE, wearing their PPE and using their tools correctly;
  4. Carry out their legal duties; and
  5. Give their cooperation regarding any duties or requirement that you give them (OHSA Section 14).
