Why you should include Recognition in your Safety Program

By | June 25, 2020 | 0 comment

Our world is dramatically changing. Recently, the epidemic threw us all a curveball and almost every company in any industry had to re-think every part of their operations. As we slowly try to create a similar work environment to the one we lived before Covid-19, there are two essential questions organizations need to ask themselves: How do we create a safe work environment and how do we keep our employees engaged and focused? Your employees are your best allies and whether they’re working from home or physically present in the office is still imperative to motivate employees. Promoting a culture of safety is key to ensuring your productivity. As safety laws and safety practices change your safety recognition program should adjust accordingly.

Make Recognition a part of your Safety Program 

The objective of any safety program should not focus solely on decreasing the number of injuries but creating a balance reducing accidents and promoting behaviours and activities. Depending on your company current safety culture, your program and objectives will vary. However, there are two aspects to remember. The first is who to reward. The answer is easy: everyone. From top to bottom. Safety is a daily effort from everyone inside the company. The second aspect is when you should reward and how often. There are many categories where you can reward individuals and teams. We can help you create a unique recognition piece for: 

  • Training completion;
  • Safety achievements;
  • Months of safety;
  • Safety Leader of the year;
  • Innovative Safety Initiatives;
  • Wearing PPE. 

Safety Recognition Awards should be meaningful

Don’t give out the same award in every category. Personalization is key and we’re not just talking about adding the winners’ name. Depending on which industry you work, the possibilities are endless. Our artisans have created thousands of unique pieces where we custom cut acrylic to represent whichever shape our clients need. And we can do the same for you. We can create an acrylic award shaped in boots or even a helmet. 

If you decide to create a “Months of Safety” award, we can create building block awards where each block represents a month that has gone by with no accidents. This could also work for hitting significant milestones. 

Another speciality of ours is embedding. If your workforce has a tool essential for their everyday activities, why not make it part of the award? In this Certificate of Qualification piece, we embedded a painter’s scrapper, the union logo and a congratulatory message. Overall, it’s a simple idea but a unique recognition piece representing the receiver’s achievements. If you’re wondering what we can and cannot embed in acrylic, you can take a look at our extensive list here.

Think about your awards as being physical representations of your mission. For one client we created a leadership recognition pyramid. We digitally printed a text describing an employee’s leadership skills, his team signatures and recreated their logo with a smaller pyramid embedded with the company colours.

Remember that people give a well thought out recognition product more value than a monetary prize. At Clearmount, everything we do is custom, and as such, we can design to all your specifications.
