Five ways to stop worring about injuries and start doing something about them.

American businesses spend more than $1 billion a week on workplace injuries, according to the Liberty Mutual Workplace Injury Survey.  A company that can’t get injuries under control may pay for it in:

  • Higher workers comp costs,
  • Increased OSHA recordables, which may threaten their ability to work for customers,
  • Lost productivity, and
  • potentially higher health care costs if injuries manifest themselves in other health problems.

No wonder so many businesses worry about injuries.   But there is a difference between worrying and doing something about it.  The key is to put a management system in place to prevent and reduce the impact of injuries.  Recently we developed a paper that identifies steps companies can take to start managing injuries in an effective, systematic way.
