Accidents on a job site are often much more expensive than many employers expect. Workers’ compensation costs associated with a workplace injury and the indirect costs shouldered by the business itself can be financially devastating.
The OSHA $afety Pays online tool allows employers the ability to calculate the financial impact of a long list of common workplace injuries. From amputations to vision loss, this tool generates direct and indirect cost estimates based on averages collected from actual workers’ compensation claims for each injury type. The tool is easy to use and provides business owners with helpful information and motivation when planning for safety training and equipment expenditures.
