Do Employees Feel Safe at Work? New Data for 2023


6/8/23 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm CDT

Event Description

Employees don’t feel prepared to navigate an increasingly dangerous world, and they expect their employers to not only care about their personal safety, but to actively keep them safe. How do we know? We asked them.

For the second year in a row, we surveyed more than 2,000 employees from across the United States to understand their genuine feelings about workplace risks and their organizations’ efforts to keep them safe. The results are documented in AlertMedia’s “2023 State of Employee Safety Report.”

During this webinar, John Yarbrough, Vice President of Content and Communications at AlertMedia, and Peter Steinfeld, Senior Vice President of Safety Solutions at AlertMedia, will present the report’s key insights and findings. Join us to learn how these eye-opening conclusions can help improve employee safety at your organization.

Key learning objectives:

  1. Do employees think their employers’ physical and psychological safety efforts are effective?
  2. Do they believe their employers prioritize workplace safety as much as they do?
  3. How safe and prepared do they feel during business travel?
  4. Do they feel safer working onsite or remotely?
  5. What can employers do to help employees feel safer and more valued?
