Train and retain: Strengthening culture through injury prevention
from For Construction Pros
Workplace safety is an expensive problem. According to the 2019 Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index, U.S. companies incur nearly $55 billion in annual direct costs alone due to nonfatal, workplace injuries. While, $31 billion of this cost can be attributed to musculoskeletal disorders, which are particularly common in transportation, warehousing and manufacturing industries, where repeated lifting, pushing, pulling and carrying on the job takes a toll on employees’ bodies over time. In these high-risk industries, annual direct costs from MSDs total $2.97 billion.
