Workplace safety programs pay off

OSHA Healthcare Connection, April 29, 2008

 

OSHA and a number of safety-minded organizations are teaming up to get the word out that "Safety Is Good Business," which is also the theme of North American Occupational Safety and Health Week (NAOSH), May 4–10.

Investing in health and safety programs is a sound strategy for business of all sizes and types, according to the American Society of Safety Engineers, which sponsors NAOSH Week activities. For every $1 invested in safety programs, $4–$6 are saved in decreased injuries, illnesses, medical costs, and workers' compensation costs while worker productivity increases, according to a NAOSH Week fact sheet.
