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:
  • Identify and prioritize problem areas
  • Increase employee involvement, awareness and responsibility regarding the safety, health and security programs
  • Raise morale
  • Establish an early warning system
  • Expedite problem solution and program improvement
  • Validate management decisions
  • Establish baseline measure for future re-survey comparison
  • Monitor safety program and improvement progress

The NSC offers employee safety surveys that: Automatically create a prioritized list for strategic action planning and improvement; Get employees involved in the safety process; and Set a baseline for measuring future improvement.
