Work pressures

Ensure pay does not relate directly to production. Bonus systems and job-and-finish can increase the risks because they encourage people to work beyond their natural capacity. If there is a bonus system, try to reduce the extent to which it is related to productivity – aim for a balance between bonus systems and workload.
