OSHA Criticizes Safety-Incentive Programs, Encourages Whistleblowers

JDSupra (05/03/2012)

Companies may want to move away from safety-management programs that mainly track the program’s effectiveness based upon recordable injuries. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has criticized such programs and is encouraging whistleblowers instead.

Companies should carefully review the March 12 memo on “Employer Safety Incentive and Disincentive Policies and Practices.” OSHA considers “reporting an injury to always be a protected activity” and looks askance at companies that discipline, terminate, or take other adverse action against an employee who reports a workplace injury.
