Workplace accidents can be quite costly to any organization. According to the National Council on Compensation Insurance, each workplace injury claim amounts to about $40,000. Collectively, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that on average, companies spend over $1 billion every week on workers’ compensation fees for workplace-related injuries. A huge loss.
Of course, no company is without unexpected events. Yet, the astronomical statistic begs the question: How can these accidents and associated expenses be minimized?
