Incentives to Encourage Workforce to Raise Awareness of Site Safety

The entire workforce should be encouraged to take responsibility for their own safety on and around site.

Construction sites can present a danger to everyone involved, from operatives to the general public. It is therefore essential to implement safety systems, to ensure everyone’s wellbeing.

Below is an example of how workers were encouraged and recognised, when taking their own personal safety seriously:

  • Operatives had the opportunity to be awarded with a gold, silver or bronze badges for safety related reasons on site;
  • These badges were branded with the contractors name and the clients logo, which in this case was a school;
  • 300 bronze badges were available to recognise efforts to raise awareness of site safety or promotion of personal health;
  • 50 silver badges were available to award the best near miss/ hazard identifications;
  • Just 20 gold badges were available to those who have been made safety operative of the month.
