Custodial Services recently implemented a safety awareness push so that all associates stay aware and remember the extreme importance of being safe in the workplace.
Each custodial associate is now issued a wristband, which is considered part of their uniform. It’s a simple plastic bright neon green wristband with the slogan “Be Safe – Stay Alert – Don’t Get Hurt.”
Each morning when the five minute safety minder is read for each crew, part of the meeting includes (by a show of hands) who is wearing their safety wristband. Those who are wearing their wristbands are praised and those who are not wearing them are documented and reminded to do so going forward.
At the end of each quarter, each crew that was in compliance during the full quarter will be rewarded in some way. Custodial Services is still gathering reward ideas from their crews.
Way to go, Custodial Services, on implementing what hopefully turns into a very successful safety incentive program!
