How your company benefits

“A few years ago we were looking to improve the reporting of workplace hazards and near-misses across all our sites. Staff and contractors were able to phone in these potential safety issues to a dedicated reporting line so they could be resolved. As it is sometimes easier not to take time to make the call, we came up with the idea of ‘rewarding’ everyone who made the effort by donating £2 for each call to a charity. For several years now that charity has been the air ambulance trusts in our region.

"For us it’s the perfect result – we’ve greatly increased the number of near hazards and near-misses reported so the overall safety risk has been reduced. Simultaneously, we are supporting an excellent charity that could be called on to help any of our staff or their families involved in a serious accident.

"We’ve proved it works and I would commend this type of charitable reward link as an incentive to any other organisations looking to improve staff engagement with an issue.”

- John Courden, Head of Health & Safety, Southern Water
