Your Managers

An increased understanding of workplace hazards and remedies will put your managers in a better position to:

  • Become more effective at their jobs. Management experts believe that the company with a well-managed safety and health system enjoys better overall management.
  • Increase productivity rates and assure product quality.

Your Business as a Whole

An exemplary workplace safety and health management system is “good business sense” that also makes financial sense because it will allow you to:

  • Learn first-hand that the cost of accident prevention is far lower than the cost of accidents..
  • Improve the bottom line by:
    • Lowering injury and illness rates,
    • Decreasing workers’ compensation costs,
    • Reducing lost workdays, and
    • Limiting equipment damage and product losses.

And if you are a small employer, you may be eligible for another great benefit – recognition by the state and OSHA through participation in the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP).
