Name Instructor Course Date Do safety incentives and rewards result to under-reporting of safety incidents? The most significant debate that has been running in most organizations is the role of rewards and incentives. There is a good proportion of people who postulate that most of the workers would work well if they are provided with incentives. However there still another cohort of individuals who asserts that providing incentives and rewards to workers can more harm than good. Amazing managers and supervisors of the most organization have fuelled this debate further. In fact the most significant proportion of managers agrees that providing workers with incentives always have a negative consequence of reduced reporting to safety incidents. Depending on the type of organization there several types of rewards and incentives that can be given to workers ranging from monetary rewards funded trips and paid days off. Moreover Safety incentive programs also consequences to an organization. When the managers of organizations fail to take care of the incentive programs the employees may be dissuaded to report incidences of injury to avoid missing the rewards and bonuses. Peer pressure from team members may also be so prevalent that workers become negatively influenced to report safety incidences. Works Cited Bouten Lies and Sophie Hoozée.
