Accident prevention can help you save much more than the well being of your employees. Expenses associated with occupational injuries and illnesses can include:

  • Workers' compensation costs;
  • Medical bills;
  • Indemnity claims;
  • Damage to equipment and materials;
  • Schedule delays;
  • Downtime for the injured employee, supervisor and co-workers;
  • Retraining; and
