Abstract
This U.S. Bureau of Mines paper was prepared to provide safety professionals with some direction concerning the choice of strategies for encouraging employees to adopt self-protective behaviors and/or avoid unsafe acts. Five strategies are considered: (1) incentives, (2) disciplinary actions, (3) fear messages, (4) behavior modeling, and (5) employee surveys. Each strategy is briefly described, and a summary of the empirical evidence concerning its effectiveness and limitations is given. Some recommendations are made concerning the use of these strategies, and several hypotheses and unanswered questions are identified as topics for future research.
