|Who thinks investing in safety equipment and programs
impacts the bottom line?
||61% of executives claim that for every dollar spent on investments
in workplace safety $3 are saved (according to a poll by the Liberty
|| 95% of the executives in the poll indicate workplace safety has a
positive impact on a company's financial performance
|| OSHA's Office of Regulatory Affairs reports an even more dramatic
result; suggesting $4 to $6 are saved for every $1 invested|
|Estimating the financial costs in advance
of an injury is difficult. Fortunately, OSHA's
interactive $afety Pays website offers
Using insurance company claims data, the
tool calculates the estimated direct and
indirect costs of an injury. Also, if you enter
your profit margin information, $afety Pays
will project the additional sales required to
recover the costs of the injury.
Consider a simple example: Assume that
a company has annual sales of $10 million
with an 8% pre-tax profit margin. For a
single accident resulting in an amputation,
$afety Pays estimates the costs of the
injury as follows:
|Average Direct Cost:
|Average Indirect Cost:
|Estimated Total Cost:
|The additional sales revenue necessary to
cover these costs are:
Total Cost: $570,100
In other words, the next 5.7% of sales
growth will go solely to pay for the
total cost of the accident. If your pre-tax
margins are less, the sales impact is
Indirect costs account for the majority
of accident expenses but are not
typically covered by insurance.
One final note - the answers returned by
$afety Pays may be conservative with
regard to the ratio of indirect-to-direct
costs which is almost 1:1. A poll by Liberty
Mutual Group estimates the actual figure
may be 5:1 while an American Society
of Safety Engineers study suggests
a ratio of 8:1.
