One of the most pursued issues by safety people is getting employees to commit to the safety program. On this episode, 3 ways to get a better commitment to safety.

Employee commitment to safety is important. And as well-meaning as the efforts of your senior management may be to safety, without the employee commitment to safety, any safety initiative is going to fall flat. You need a commitment to safety from especially the front line employees.

Here’s why. The majority of safety incidents happen at the front line. The largest numbers of workers are at the front line. The most amount of activity is at the front line. And so it’s at the front line where the focus on safety needs to take place. It is at the front line where safety leadership is needed most.

There are three areas where you can work to build employee commitment to safety.
