The main aim of this article is to verify the awareness of employers regarding the use of motivational tools for promoting OHS compliance and to explore the effects of their application. Structured interviews were carried out in a purposefully selected group of Polish construction companies between September and November 2016.The interviews confirmed the following thesis that resulted from previous studies based on which financial tools were found to be main motivators: a risk of "a loop" is indicated where the financially motivated OHS compliance is perceived by employees mostly as a source of financial gain.
