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 Mutual Group)
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

Did you know OSTI has a Maintenance & Repair Services Division in Southern California?

The Cost of Safety
Estimating the financial costs in advance of an injury is difficult. Fortunately, OSHA's interactive $afety Pays website offers assistance.

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: $21,718
Average Indirect Cost: $23,890
Estimated Total Cost: $45,608
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 even greater.

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.
