Program Evaluation and Improvement Once a safety and health program is established, it should be evaluated initially to verify that it is being implemented as intended. After that, employers should periodically, and at least annually, step back and assess what is working and what is not, and whether the program is on track to achieve its goals.

This approach to evaluation focuses on theoretical rather than methodological issues. The basic idea is to use the “program’s rationale or theory as the basis of an evaluation to understand the program’s development and impact” (Smith,p.
