    Why Should You Care About Workplace Safety?

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 4,693 workers died on the job in 2011 – that translates to 13 people every day who went to work and never made it home.

    Minimize Legal Risks.

    OSHA provides you with the foundation to put an effective safety plan into place for your organization with rules and regulations that aren't just mandates, but also performance standards. These standards help minimize legal risks for employers.

    Protect Your People & Profits.

    Don't view workplace safety training as a "have to." Instead look at it as a way to help your employees and co-workers maintain a healthy, safe environment.

    Reduce Worker Injuries & Comp Claims.

    Effective safety planning and training will help reduce worker injuries and compensation claims.

    However, being a governmental, regulatory body, OSHA doesn't always make its requirements and regulations clear. For instance, how do you do the action to keep a safe work environment? What are the performance standards that need to be met? That's where you need to make sure you have an effective workplace safety training program in place.

    Over the longer term, of course, safety pays; good safety and health management tends to translate into profitability and a stronger national economy by preventing worker injuries, saving on a host of costs, spurring worker engagement, and enhancing the company’s reputation.
