Innovation Idea Details

The Gardens (The Care Group)

Innovation Idea:
The Gotcha Safety Awards is a campaign to ‘catch’ colleagues in the act of performing an act or task safely.

The aim is to take a photo of a staff member following a safe work practice (SWP) and submit it to the Health and Safety Committee. For each photo submitted the photographer will receive a point for their department and the person photographed will also receive a point for their department. The photos will be displayed on the notice boards along with a monthly update of the scorecard.
