Various strategies have been used to encourage employee participation in safety programs. The intent of this presentation is to provide guidance to safety professionals concerning the use of three techniques for encouraging employees to participate in their safety program: (1) employee surveys, (2) incentives, and (3) fear communications. 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.
