Press Release Body: A safety preparedness program will prevent injury from occurring at your workplace. A safety preparedness program will save your company hours of logistical work and wasted aggravation. And last but not least, although safety is a money investment, your returns are almost guaranteed to save your company money in the long run. Since partnering with Legend Safety, many companiesí Experience Modification Factor (EMF) has decreased significantly saving them tens of thousands of dollars per year.
The math is quite simple. If work injuries cost Americans $146.6 billion in 2002, which amounts to $1,060 per worker; why not invest less than that per worker for safety prevention programs and save the injuries?
ďBefore 1990, believe it or not, in public hearings in the state capital I would have employers in front of my committee who did not know what their experience modification factor was or what it meant or how it got that way,Ē says Bob Shiprack, secretary of the Oregon Building and Construction Trades Council. ďWe had to educate employers to the fact that safety makes good business sense.Ē
ďEstimates of the total direct cost savings to Oregon employers due to the reduced number of claims approaches $1.3 billion from 1988 through 1995. That\'s just direct premium costs, and as the contractor representative said back there, one of the things in labor we talk about, there\'s need and there\'s greed, and what we found was there was obviously a need for a safer workplace, but we finally convinced employers that it made good business sense.Ē
If you could save money, improve productivity, and increase employee morale, would you? According to OSHA, businesses spend $170 billion a year on costs associated with occupational injuries and illnessesóexpenditures that come straight out of company profits. But work-places that establish safety and health management systems can reduce their injury and illness costs by 20 to 40 percent. In todayís business environment, these costs can be the difference between operating in the black and running in the red. Injuries and illnesses increase workersí 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.
Safe workplaces provide the consistency and reliability needed to build a community and grow a business. Workplaces with active safety and health leadership have fewer injuries, are often rated ďbetter places to work,Ē and have more satisfied, more productive employees. These employees return to work more quickly after an injury or illness and produce higher-quality products and services.
