Workplace Safety Program

Establishing a Safety Program Framework

A safe workplace benefits everyone for many reasons:

  • Workers: Fewer injuries, higher morale, greater confidence, and steady pay helps workers support themselves and their families. Workers and employers can focus on meeting production schedules and delivering quality products and customer service.
  • Employers: Workplace safety can improve the bottom-line costs of doing business. An effective safety plan and lower injury rates can result in safer, more loyal workers, contributing to higher workplace productivity and morale. This in turn contributes to savings for employers by lowering the costs of worker's compensation insurance premiums and the cost of doing business.
  • Customers and the Public: The overall lowered costs for goods produced and timely services delivered benefit customers directly and add indirect value to the public and community.
