Will you be attending the 2017 National Safety Council Congress & Expo in Indianapolis? Are you looking for ways to create the safest workplace possible, while increasing your profits and productivity along the way? Well, you’re in luck, because C.A. Short Company will be on hand to show you how to do just that. Be sure to swing by booth #4704, and our team of experts will be happy to share with you the power of Safegagement™!
What is Safegagement™?
Safety + Engagement = Safegagement™
Yes, this formula seems simple, but the truth is so many safety incentive programs fail because they leave out one crucial element – the engagement. That may not seem like a big deal, but if your team isn’t fully engaged and dedicated to creating a safer workplace, there is no amount of incentives that can make your plan work.
This isn’t the only way Safegagement™ differs from other plans on the market. Many points-based incentive programs are not designed with true safety in mind. In fact, many encourage negative actions that can actually create a more dangerous working environment. This is why C.A. Short Company is proud to offer incentive and recognition solutions that are 100% OSHA® compliant.
Another area that separates us from our peers deals with lagging and leading indicators. Lagging indicators, which have historically been used, only measure past performance and generally focus on negative outcomes – such as an OSHA® violation or a reported injury. Leading indicators, on the other hand, are much more proactive. Examples of leading indicators can include an employee participating in a safety meeting or recognizing an unsafe working condition before an accident occurs.
The Power of Safegagement
What can your company accomplish when your team is engaged and focused on creating a Culture of Safegagement™? The results are shocking. Although there are too many statistics to list here, let’s take a look at just a few from Gallup’s annual “State of the American Workplace” report. The following percentages indicate results companies with high levels of engagement experience when compared to companies with low levels of engagement:
- 41% Lower absenteeism
- 24% lower turnover (high turnover industries)
- 59% lower turnover (low turnover industries)
- 28% less shrinkage
- 70% fewer employee safety incidents
- 58% fewer patient safety incidents
- 40% fewer quality incidents (defects)
- 17% higher productivity
- 20% higher sales
- 21% higher profitability
