Committee member comments included the <br />following: <br /> <br />· Care should be taken in putting the program together because if a <br /> program is too lucrative, as far as rewards, people will not report <br /> injuries. <br />· The program should recognize employees for doing things right. We <br /> should be catching people doing the right thing. <br />· The incentive award could be presented at the all employee quarterly <br /> meetings and the program could be run similar to the incentive award <br /> program. <br />· Recognition could be provided for not having a lost time accident. <br />· The program could be a "Safe Employee of the Quarter." <br />· The program should recognize overall safety performance of <br /> employees. <br />· The Safety Committee could identify potential award recipients based <br /> on recommendations from other employees or Safety Committee <br /> members. <br /> <br /> <br />
