Work health and safety affects everyone – every year people are dying due to unsafe work practices, and it’s simply not good enough.
The infograph above shows how significant unsafe work practices are in our country. Workplace Health and Safety is something every workplace should invest in. If not to prevent costly compensation claims, than to prevent and minimise the chances of your employees having to attend a funeral for their co-worker due to a preventable death.
The cost of work-related injury and disease to the Australian economy is $61.8 billion dollars a year. This is a significant amount, especially when taking into account employers were responsible for 5% of that total cost.
Employing safe work practices benefits your organisation, from those working on the ground up to the CEO. Your employees will have peace of mind knowing everything they are doing is based on best practice safety standards.
