  6. Occupational Safety • Safety Awareness Incentive Program: Rewarding employees for voluntary participation in selected safety programs. Some of the ways employees can win incentive prizes include: - Completing all required safety training - Answering the “Safety Challenge” question on our website - Submitting an “Unsafe Condition Report” from our website - Just by being observed working in a safe manner Remember, you can NOT be released from your job, reprimanded, or otherwise disciplined, for reporting a safety concern.
