Abstract
This presentation was prepared by the U.S. Bureau of Mines to provide safety professionals with some direction concerning the choice of strategies for encouraging employees to adopt self-protective behaviors and avoid unsafe acts. Four strategies are considered: (1) incentives, (2) employee surveys, (3) fear communications, and (4) disciplinary actions. Each strategy is described, and the research findings concerning its effectiveness and limitations are briefly summarized.
