Benefits of prevention

According to the Health and Safety Executive, employers who implement suitable measures to prevent accidents in the workplace could reap a number of benefits. As well as reducing the number of injuries at work, managers could also:

Be less likely to suffer legal action
Acquire a better reputation amongst partners, investors, customers and suppliers
Have employees who feel more motivated, demonstrating greater productivity
Reduce costs
Have reduced employee turnover and absence rates. It has been reported that over 2,000,000 working days each year are lost due to handling accidents and slips and trips alone.
