A safe workplace is a happy workplace. And having the right incentives in place such as corporate gifts will encourage your team and staff to work together to ensure safe work practices are being adhered to.
Not only will the recipients of the gift feel rewarded and positive, but it will also reinforce safety routines and save the company money.
What is lost time injury?
Lost time injury is an injury sustained by an employee that leads to a lost in productive work. The frequency it occurs is known as Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR).
This is in the form of delays or absenteeism. Lost time injuries can only be considered if the lost time injury employee is unable to perform regular duties, takes time off to recover or is assigned alternative tasks while healing.
What gifts to give?
There are a variety of rewards or gifts you can reward employees with. At first glance, cash might seem like a good idea.
However, it’s been found to quickly become forgettable and doesn’t have the same “special acknowledgement” and memorable symbol an award or corporate gift does.
Popular LTI gift ideas
- Baseball Caps
- Custom Trophys
- Handwritten Notes
- Travel Bags
- Picnic and BBQ Gear
It’s also important to mix up your offerings or have choice available to employees.
If you’ve already given employees a backpack or jacket, giving them another one in a short time span is not going to be as effective as another gift.
Other tips to reduce LTIFR
- Appropriate PPE equipment available at all times
- Create a safety culture
- Ensure staff are educated on safe work practices
- Ensure and update injury response processes
- Punishment for those who fail to adhere to certain measures
- Fit for duty assesments
- Risk assessments whenever something new is added (e.g. new machinery, job task changes etc.)
