||This article presents the results of the implementation of a safety programme at a major road building contractor in the United States, based on rewarding behaviours rather than injury statistics which are often flawed because of underreporting. It is based on individual e-learning, coupled with incentives for completing each module. Eleven months from the launch of the programme, the company's reportable injury rates, serious injuries, fleet incidents and claims cost per man hour were reduced by 63%, 75%, 70% and 90% respectively from the previous year.
