Starting May 1st!
Beginning May 1st, you may visit http://www.pointrecognition.com to view your personal rewards account, browse the online award catalog and learn about the way you can earn points. The website keeps track of the points you've earned and spent.
Points are earned by YOU for your safe actions and behaviors that are in the spirit of MEC’s core values & safety performance goals.
We are excited to use this rewards program to show our appreciation and let you know how valuable your contribution is to our shared mission.
MEC will contribute 5,000 points into your account on May 1st, to get you started!
Each month you will be awarded a predetermined amount of points for each criterion that is achieved, submitted and approved. What’s important is that, each month that MEC has a safe period of no preventable accidents, you will automatically receive a minimum number points, recognizing your safety contribution to the program. But you are also able to earn additional points!
Here’s how it works:
Point Recognition Criteria
No Preventable Incidents (Automatic Each Month) = 5,000 Points
A Preventable Incident is deemed as one in which the employee did not do everything reasonable to avoid it. (ALL First Aid Injuries and vehicle incidents <$100 are excluded) Note: No submission or form is required for this category.
Voluntary Training Course = 1,250 Points
A Voluntary Safety Training Course is one that is attended (on-line or instructor Led) and completed by the employee and is at least 1 Hour in length resulting in a certificate or card being issued. A copy of the certification of completion must be submitted to the safety department for credit.
Near Miss Report = 1,250 Points
A Near Miss is an unplanned event that did not result in injury, illness, or damage – but had the potential to do so. Only a fortunate break in the chain of events prevented an injury, fatality or damage. A Near Miss must be documented on a company form with suggested corrective actions & submitted to the safety department for credit.
Safety Suggestion = 1,250 Points A Safety Suggestion is a constructive idea that defines an existing problem and proposes a detailed, reasonable solution. A suggestion must be an original idea and must call attention to a specific problem, and must include a specific solution in order to be eligible. Safety Suggestions must be documented on a company form and submitted to the safety department for credit.
Stop Work Authority = 1,250 Points
Stop work authority (SWA) empowers employees to intervene if and when they see situations that are unsafe or they see others engaged in unsafe behaviors. There will be no adverse effect (blame or punishment) levied on the person taking such action. The employee will also receive appreciation or recognition by management for it. Stop Work Authority must be documented on a company form, corrective actions identified, implemented and submitted to the safety department for credit.
