According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employers pay an average of $1 billion per week on direct workers’ compensation costs alone.
If American workplaces are getting safer, why are the costs of serious workplace injuries continuing to rise?
For two reasons:
- Lack of Prevention. Employers who control the risk of injury with a safety policy, ongoing safety training and employee testing minimize their risk, and statistically have a safer workforce overall.
- Absence of Intervention. The sooner your employee can be treated, the sooner they can safely get back to work. Without early intervention in place to manage the recovery process, the more you’re business will be impacted.
These can include:
- Workers Compensation Claims
- Productivity Loss
- Legal Fees
Unfortunately, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
