Employee Surveys Help Identify Problem Areas

The National Safety Council has declared June as National Safety Month and developed a variety of events and materials to promote home and workplace safety, including employee perception surveys to help you identify safety concerns and evaluate your safety program.
A survey is the most accurate, timely and sensitive indicator of safety program quality and can help you find the strengths and weaknesses of your safety program. Surveys collect feedback directly from employees at all levels of your organization, providing a leading set of indicators of safety program quality and effectiveness. Employee surveys can:
