National Manufacturing Day, a celebration of modern manufacturing, is one week away. Come celebrate with Arbill, as we will be hosting a free event on Friday, October 6th at our headquarters in Philadelphia.
According to the 2016 Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index, the most disabling, nonfatal workplace injuries amounted to nearly $62 billion in direct workers compensation costs, last year. This is a very large number and represents a huge cost to employers, but when you take into account indirect costs, that number dramatically increases to $250 billion each year.
So how are direct and indirect costs defined and how can you calculate the true cost of an injury and its effect on your organization?
Hurricane Harvey and Irma caused severe devestation and destruction to Texas, Florida and various other parts of the Southeastern United States. The powerful storms brought high winds, rising ocean levels and torrential rain, causing severe flooding.
Flooding is extremely dangerous as it is difficult to determine where the water is going and how deep it is in certain parts. Even when flood waters begin to recede there are still dangers associated with working in those areas.
I’m always excited when a new employee starts at Arbill. We plan in advance to welcome the employee and make sure he/she meets with key people and learns the ropes from our experienced staff. It’s also important that all new employees -- in every area of the company --understands from day one that we are a safety company. Nothing is more important than keeping workers safe.
Workplace injuries cost companies over $62 billion each year and cause significant physical and emotional pain for those injured and their families. By not providing the proper protection or not giving the proper instruction on how to care for or use safety equipment, you are leaving employees vulnerable to injury and your business open to a negative impact on your bottom line.
