Utility safety: Custom coins help raise awareness of safety at industrial and commercial facilities by providing a tangible reminder each time they are seen with pocket change. Whether used as a stand-alone recognition device, coupled with other rewards (like cash or prize raffles), or used within a larger safety incentive program, custom coins are proving to raise the awareness of safe acts and practices while lowering unsafe incidents. Osborne Coinage's custom safety coins are ideal for a wide range of industries including paper mills and other processing environments, waste and recycling haulers, all types of manufacturing, municipalities and service providers such as gas, electric and other utilities, and commercial enterprises such as landscaping contractors.

Companies that have used safety coins report fewer lost time accidents, fewer workers comp claims, and fewer motor vehicle accidents – which correspondingly lowers insurance premiums. Employee benefits included better on-time performance and better morale among others. At TECO Peoples Gas, preventable accidents dropped by 30% and workers compensation claims dropped by 75%. Due to the lower number of claims, insurance premiums have dropped, thus increasing profits.

Safety coins from Osborne Coinage Company are available in a wide range of materials, colors and sizes to suit any preference or need. Custom designs can be shipped within 10 business days so that safety programs can begin seeing results right away.
