Management guides the program by assigning roles and duties and making sure workers feel comfortable talking about safety and health issues.
To do so:
• Identify who will lead, plan, coordinate activities, and track progress;
• Regularly communicate duties and authorities for implementing and maintaining the program, and hold people accountable for performance;
• Give positive feedback and recognition for reaching or exceeding goals aimed at preventing injury and illness;
• Make communication free and easy so workers and leaders can discuss without fear of retaliation.
