Why it’s important…
Money Saved With Solid Workplace Safety
With a small investment in safety equipment and changes or development of an internal safety policy, you can increase profitably and productivity while keeping your employees safe.
A 2012 study by California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) indicated a 9.4% reduction in injury claims and a 26% average savings on workers’ compensation costs in the four years following a Cal/OSHA inspection compared to a similar group of uninspected workplaces. On average, inspected firms saved an estimated $355,000 in injury claims and compensation paid for lost work over those four years.
They can save the DIY’er a trip to the emergency room.
One in five do-it-yourselfers will require medical attention this year. According to Consumer Reports, Lawn mower-related injuries alone treated in hospital emergency rooms totaled 86,000 in 2009. It was reported that the four top safety culprits for DIY’ers were falling off a ladder, working with paints and chemicals, gardening, and power tools. According to the Monash University Accident Research Centre, power tools such as grinders, polishers and buffers account for one-fifth of all injuries.
Preventable accidents occur because most novice DIY’ers and hobbyists have a tendency to solely focus on the task at hand, underestimating the amount of safety equipment needed for a particular project, or failing to recognize potential hazards altogether. Spending a small amount of time getting educated on how to be safe while performing household chores and weekend projects can save you on medical costs, hours spent in the emergency room and time out of work.
