Is not being in compliance with Cal/OSHA Regulations costing your organization?

According to the United States Department of Labor, businesses spend $170 billion a year on costs associated with workplace-related injuries and illnesses. Occupational illness and injury contribute to decreased employee morale, reduced productivity and higher on-the-job stress, while leading to increased worker's comp claims, higher insurance premiums, retraining costs, absenteeism, and lower-quality products and services.

Workers whose employers take steps to protect their health, fitness and safety on the job are more likely to report job satisfaction, enjoy a higher quality of life, contribute a more optimistic, enthusiastic outlook, and interact positively with their work peers and superiors.
