Safety E-QuickTips is a weekly email designed to help Employers and Employees start their week with a short thought about safety in the workplace.


Workplace Safety Is Both Personal and Good Business

You’ve heard the saying “It’s not personal its business.”

Well, when it comes to workplace safety, it’s actually a little of both.

This year we’ve talked about the high costs associated with workplace accidents – increased workers’ compensation and liability insurance rates, lost production, OSHA penalties and more.

We’ve also talked about how accidents can prevent you from getting on bidder’s lists because of a high EMR or because of the poor reputation they can convey.

So based on the adverse effects workplace accidents can have, there’s no question it’s good business to do what is necessary to prevent accidents in the workplace.

Now let’s take a moment to talk about the personal side.

Take a moment and think about the people who work with you and maybe even for you. They might be your son, daughter, mother, father or other family member. They are coworkers and maybe even your best friends.

How would you feel if one of them were seriously injured or even killed on the job? And how do you think they would feel if the same happened to you?

Do you think it might get a little personal?

Today about 13 workers will die on the job. That’s 13 family members and friends that will die.

Just think how good it would be for those businesses, families and friends if that number was zero.

Workplace safety is both personal and good business. Do your part today and every workday to make your workplace the safest place possible.
