OSHA Expert Needed

For those of you who were around seven or eight years ago, I used to be "psrcello". A couple of job changes later, here I am again!

I'm trying to help our safety coordinator come up with employee bonus goals. He's currently using behavior based safety audit completion as the goal, and everyone is getting 100%. However, our recordable incident rate and lost time severity rates are horrendous! It seems that there's a disconnect between the bonus goal and the achieved results.

In previous lives, I've used recordable incident rate as a bonus goal, coupled with a second goal encouraging employees to report near misses and minor injuries. However, the safety guy claims that OSHA "prohibits" employers from tying bonuses to recordable incident rates.

Any input?
