An effective workplace safety program can improve an organization’s bottom line and financial performance. Workplace injuries cost employers some $50 billion in direct wages and medical payments annually. The indirect costs are even more burdensome at $80 to $200 billion a year.

Injuries and illnesses at work increase:

  • workers compensation costs
  • retraining costs
  • absenteeism
  • production problems

Likewise, they decrease:

  • productivity
  • morale
  • profits

Focusing on safety issues can help your organization:

  • avoid legal costs
  • improve morale
  • boost productivity
  • reduce turnover
  • reduce workers compensation insurance premiums
