Workplaces that establish effective, proactive safety and health management systems can reduce their injury and illness costs by 20% - 40%...savings that translate straight to a company’s bottom line profitability.  In today’s business environment, these costs can be the difference between operating in the black and running in the red. 

An Applied Practice, Not a Document

Too many companies just have “a safety manual” instead of a systematic approach to managing safety and health.  Safety and health management is part of how a company does business.  It’s a continuous effort requiring regular assessment, training and management.  

The experts at Missouri Enterprise help manufacturers with the specific, customer focused services they need, such as: in-depth needs assessments, safety committee coordination, employee manual creation, training activity development and more.

The benefits of a successful safety and health program can be tangible and intangible, and the cost savings can be dramatic.  Benefits include:

  • Prevent Accidents
  • Identify and Eliminate Safety Hazards
  • Ensure Regulatory Compliance for Safety
  • Promote a Culture of Workplace Safety and Health
  • Enhance Employee and Management Awareness of Safety and Health Problems
  • Employee Well-Being (Improved Employee Moral and Retention)

Safety and Health Management Yields a Healthy ROI 

Successful Manufacturers take a proactive approach to safety and health management; they understand it’s a continuous process requiring regular effort to assess, train and manage activities that promote a healthy and safe environment.  They know it can cost a lot more to ignore it, and the cost savings and return on investment can easily justify the expense and effort.

  • Direct Cost Savings are relatively easy to measure, and can include:
    • Lower workers’ compensation premiums
    • Reduced medical expenditures
    • Less money spent on overtime (covering for injured workers and reduced efficiencies)
    • Smaller expenditures for return-to-work programs
    • And more. 
  • Indirect Cost Savings can be more difficult to measure but they are very real.  Indirect costs outweigh direct costs by an average of 4:1 or more and include:
    • Sales profits lost
    • Increased premiums
    • Lost productivity
    • Reduced efficiency
    • Administrative follow-up to injuries
    • Damages to equipment and property
