There is a strong correlation between employee engagement and commitment to safe behaviors. Engaged employees are five times less likely to have an accident on the job. in addition, it's seven times less likely for that accident to be a lost-time injury. Thus, engaged employees cost the organization significantly less. They are natural owners who will lead a safety culture if we just let them! The presenter explores the how-to’s and advantages of building employee engagement and ownership in employees, and how it impacts a safety culture.
