The ROI of Safety

03/11/2024 Written by: Leanne Ingwersen

Sound safety practices protect your employees' well-being and are good for your business. Research and industry experience suggest that organizations that invest in health and safety programs realize a tangible Return on Investment (ROI).

ROIs can come in:

  • Decreased Lost Time: Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS) programs can reduce the frequency of workplace injuries and incidents, allowing companies to decrease expenses related to workers' compensation insurance. Keeping employees engaged with a Return-to-Work Program (RTW) gets them back to work sooner and controls indemnity payments.
  • Compliance with Regulations, Laws, and Standards: Non-compliance can be disastrous, impacting an organization financially and damaging its reputation. Stay compliant with OSHA regulatory training through our risk management resources.
  • Increased Operational Efficiency: Focusing on safety leads to higher productivity and worker safety. Decreased claims costs and less lost time also add to a company's bottom line.
  • Improved Employee Satisfaction: Recruiting and retaining top talent is easier for organizations that provide safe and comfortable workplaces.
