According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, workplace injuries cost American businesses more than $1 billion per week. Studies have shown that companies that adequately manage workplace safety and health perform better financially than those that don't. Employers have a responsibility both to their employees, and to the company as a whole, to make safety a priority.
By ensuring a healthy, safe workplace, employers can avoid the medical expenses and lost productivity caused by workplace injury and illness. Under Section 17 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, any employer who fails to protect employees' safety and health is subject to OSHA inspection and possible fines.
