‘Incentives for Safety’ Paying Dividends

By Davies Hood, Induron President

In my last safety blog, I commented on the importance of safety in the workplace, and Induron’s mission to support this further in 2013. We kicked off a new incentive plan that year, which focused on no Lost Time Accidents (LTAs), no unexcused absences, and overall improved commitment to safety in our work environment.

I also commented on how we encouraged these goals with prize awards, and that we had six individuals in the operations department meet these goals. We celebrated with a Christmas luncheon and the big prize give-a-way, and it was pretty obvious that this program was effective, and was worth continuing in some form going forward. 

And now another measure of the success of this commitment: we received a Safety Award from the Alabama Workers Compensation for the Self-Insured, officially recognizing no LTAs for 2013 for Induron.

I am pleased with all the efforts made in our Operations Department, and achieving no LTAs is, put simply, a big deal!  It states very clearly that working safely remains important to all individuals, and that there remains a significant commitment to among our staff stay that way.

Founded in 1947, Induron manufactures high performance coatings that serve a range of industrial applications, including the wastewater, transmission and distribution and groundwater storage industries.
