Safety Programs and the Bottom Line
Why run a safety program? The answer to this question is best phrased in another, more relevant question once you understand the implications of workplace accidents throughout the United States. That question is simply, why would you NOT run a safety program?

Consider these facts compiled by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration:
  • Every year, nearly 5 million workers experience an occupational injury or illness on the job
  • More than half of these are severe enough to cause the worker to miss work
  • "When senior management decision-makers learn that disabling work-related injuries cost this country nearly $50 billion in direct costs – or about $1 billion a week – it gets their attention," states Karl Jacobsen, Senior Vice President of Liberty Mutual Group.
    Source: 2007 Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index. Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, (2008).
  • Businesses spend $170 billion a year on costs associated with occupational injuries and illnesses -- expenditures that come straight out of company profits. However, workplaces that establish safety and health management systems can reduce their injury and illness costs by 20 to 40 percent. In today's business environment, these costs can be the difference between operating in the black and running in the red.

  • Injuries and illnesses increase workers' compensation and retraining costs, absenteeism, and faulty product. They also decrease productivity, morale, and profits. Businesses operate more efficiently when they implement effective safety and health management systems. For example, a plant with 50 employees decreased production of faulty product and saved more than $265,000 with a strong safety and health program.

  • Over 60 percent of chief financial officers in one survey reported that each $1 invested in injury prevention returns $2 or more. Over 40 percent of chief financial officers cited productivity as the top benefit of an effective workplace safety program.

Safety incentive reward programs are widely used and widely accepted strategies for helping companies cope with on-the-job injuries and the tremendous costs associated with them.
