Tips from CAL/OSHA: Accidents Cost Money
Accidents Cost Money
Safety organizations, states, small business owners and major corporations alike now realize that the actual cost of a lost workday injury is substantial. For every dollar you spend on the direct costs of a worker's injury or illness, you will spend much more to cover the indirect and hidden costs. Consider what one lost workday injury would cost you in terms of:
Productive time lost by an injured employee;
Productive time lost by employees and supervisors attending the accident victim;
Clean up and start up of operations interrupted by the accident;
Time to hire or to retrain other individuals to replace the injured worker until his/her return;
Time and cost for repair or replacement of any damaged equipment or materials;
Cost of continuing all or part of the employee's wages, in addition to compensation;
Reduced morale among your employees, and perhaps lower efficiency; Increased workers' compensation insurance rates; and
Cost of completing paperwork generated by the incident.
Remember - as the summer months heat up, keep these 10 safety tips from OSHA in mind to avoid heat stroke:
1. Drink cool water. Anyone working in a hot environment should drink cool water in small amounts frequently--one cup every 20 minutes. Employers should make water available. Avoid alcohol, coffee, tea and caffeinated soft drinks, which cause dehydration.
2. Dress appropriately. Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing and change clothing if it gets completely saturated. Use sunscreen and wear a hat when working outdoors. Avoid getting sunburn.
