Accidents Cost Money

Safety organizations, states, small business owners and major corporations alike now realize that the actual cost of a lost workday injury is substantial. For every dollar you spend on the direct costs of a worker's injury or illness, you will spend much more to cover the indirect and hidden costs. Consider what one lost workday injury would cost you in terms of: 

  • Productive time lost by an injured employee; 
  • Productive time lost by employees and supervisors attending the accident victim; 
  • Clean up and start up of operations interrupted by the accident; 
  • Time to hire or to retrain other individuals to replace the injured worker until his/her return; 
  • Time and cost for repair or replacement of any damaged equipment or materials; 
  • Cost of continuing all or part of the employee's wages, in addition to compensation; 
  • Reduced morale among your employees, and perhaps lower efficiency; Increased workers' compensation insurance rates; and 
  • Cost of completing paperwork generated by the incident.

Remember - as the summer months heat up, keep these 10 safety tips from OSHA
in mind to avoid heat stroke:

1.   Drink cool water. Anyone working in a hot environment should drink cool
water in small amounts frequently--one cup every 20 minutes. Employers
should make water available. Avoid alcohol, coffee, tea and caffeinated soft
drinks, which cause dehydration.  

2.   Dress appropriately. Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting
clothing and change clothing if it gets completely saturated. Use sunscreen
and wear a hat when working outdoors. Avoid getting sunburn.
