Worker participation is meaningfully engaging workers at all levels in establishing, implementing, evaluating, and improving safety and health in the workplace. This means workers understand they are a valuable partner in making their workplace safer and are encouraged and able to communicate with management about hazards on the job. Workers are the experts when it comes to the tasks they do and the tools and equipment they use, which makes them a key resource for knowledge and innovative ideas that can improve safety and health.
Here are a few ways you can engage your employees during Safe + Sound Week. Pick the one that works best for you:
- Show you are listening and ask for feedback
- Empower workers with safety and health information
- Recognize workers or teams for contributions to workplace safety
- Partner for safety and health planning
