Is not being in compliance with OSHA Regulations costing your organization?

According to the United States Department of Labor, businesses spend $170 billion a year on costs associated with work-related injuries and illnesses.

This can contribute to decreased employee morale, reduced productivity, and higher on-the-job stress, while leading to increased workers’ comp claims,

higher insurance premiums, retraining costs, absenteeism, and lower-quality products and services.

Workers whose employers take steps to protect their health, fitness, and safety on the job are more likely to report job satisfaction,

enjoy a higher quality of life, contribute a more optimistic, enthusiastic outlook, and interact positively with peers and superiors.
