Title Motivating the workforce: The value of external health and safety awards
Bibliographic information Winter 2000, Vol.31, No.4, p.243-251. 20 ref.
Abstract The use of external health and safety awards by companies in the United Kingdom is considered, and a review of the types of award schemes currently available is provided. Two previous research projects presented data on the benefits that motivate participation in these awards. However, there are a number of further benefits that can be identified, including improved opportunities in the competitive tendering process, strengthening of community relations and positive feedback for the safety and health professional that could lead to acknowledgement of their contribution to the safety and health performance in the organization.
