Taking the right steps to protect your employees against workplace injuries is one of the best ways to improve productivity. When your company takes the correct measures to support safety and reduce the chances of workers becoming ill, your business will be protected against current and future risks. Have you taken any time to ensure that your business is taking the necessary workplace safety measures?
When safety performance is not up to par and workers become injured or ill, they will usually have to spend weeks out of the workplace. When workers are missing time because there were no proper workplace safety measures, productivity will slip due to the inconsistencies. When your permanent employees are missing time away from work, you will have to find people to replace them, and this can be costly.
You will have to train the replacements, and this also increases the chances of injuries occurring, especially if they are not properly trained. You will find yourself using more time, energy, and money trying to correct the problem than you would if you would have implemented proper workplace safety strategies in the beginning.
When non-catastrophic events occur at the workplace, you will typically see a rise in workers’ compensation claims, higher premiums on insurance policies, and you will spend more money hiring and training the replacements of the injured or ill workers.
