According to the Food Processing’s 14th Annual Manufacturing Trends Survey, line worker safety, training, and continuous improvement are considered top priorities for most U.S. food companies. However, even with two-thirds of the respondents stating that they are attempting to make worker safety part of the company culture, there is still a lack of attention paid to leading indicators, such as reporting near-miss events, observations, machine guarding, and proactive training.
An OSHA-compliant safety incentive program from C.A. Short Company creates a holistic approach to food worker safety, by incorporating both leading and lagging indicators into your employee engagement strategy. With nearly 55% of plants using a safety committee to review performance and recommend changes, top food facilities are already half-way to achieving proactive results.
Used in conjunction with your Manufacturing Line Optimization (MLO) program, an OSHA–compliant safety incentive program will help optimize productivity, develop worker skill sets, increase front line engagement, and gain organizational focus.
