Each year, thousands of manufacturing workers are injured as a result of compliance failures in the workplace. Between safety violation fines, penalties, lost workdays and decreased company morale, employee accidents are both financially and internally damaging to your business. This is why it’s critical for manufacturers to have a training program in place to help eliminate or decrease accidents.
Although safety takes precedence above all else, there are additional benefits of cultivating a safe working environment including:
1) Saving money on insurance policies. Typically, companies with more accidents pay a higher premium because they pose a higher risk.
2) Maintaining certifications and credentials that rely on operational safety compliance.
3) Decreasing legal liability by reducing exposure to potential lawsuits.
