Topic Background:

Fear of OSHA fines might be a driver for compliance but what about the financial benefits of a proactive safety program? In today’s turbulent economy, organizations are looking for creative ways to reduce costs and create a competitive advantage. While “looking beyond the leaves” for opportunities most organizations fail to recognize the safety program as a potential profit center.

Recently Liberty Mutual Insurance conducted a survey that suggests for every dollar spent on safety organizations have received a $3 to $4 return on investment. One organization, ServiceMaster was able to save $2.4 million on Workers Compensation over a 24 months period. What’s their secret? Is it really possible to transform your safety program into a proactive profit creating program?
