Do incentive promotions work?

That is the great question and there are many opinions as to the effectiveness of incentive programs. According to a survey of Safety Professionals by the National Safety & Health Council, 74% of those surveyed agreed that incentives motivate employees to work safely. In addition, 64% said they use incentives as part of their over-all safety and health program.

The biggest problem and objection to incentives is the prospect of employees failing to report an accident or incident in order to receive incentives. To avoid this, use incentives more so to focus on performance relative to leading indicators, (attending safety classes, watching safety video, etc) rather than lagging indicators like loss time accidents or recordables. Incentives also motivate employees to participate in promotions like Safe-T-Word bingo.

This promotion and/or any promotion using incentives should focus on awareness and education to safe behavior. Knowledge of safe behavior more than incentives for safe behavior will reduce accidents.

Is cash or gifts more effective with incentive promotions?

According to a survey of Safety Professionals by the National Safety & Health Council, 60% said merchandise and awards would be more effective than cash. One of the main objectives with incentives is to raise awareness and memory value to the behavior resulting from the incentive. Most will remember and recall the reason for receiving an incentive when that incentive is used.

However, they will forget anything associated with cash once it is spent. Remember the reason for giving incentives is to motivate and reinforce behavior. Merchandise reinforces behavior more effectively and imprinted merchandise with a safety theme message has even more impact.
