Safe Driving is Good Business and Good for the Bottom Line!
OSHA further points out that the costs associated with implementing a driver safety program
are minimal compared to the costs of crashes to your organization.
Examples abound of the positive return-on-investment (ROI) realized by companies
that have implemented well-designed safety programs for the benefit of their employees.
In fact, according to a Liberty Mutual Insurance Company report, based on
its Executive Survey of Workplace Safety, business executives believe their companies
receive an ROI of $3.00 or more for every $1.00 they spent on improving workplace safety.
According to OSHA, the average
crash costs an employer $16,500.
When a worker has an on-the-job
crash that results in an injury,
the average cost to their employer is $74,000.
Costs can exceed $500,000 when a fatality is involved.
Off-the-job crashes are costly to employers as well.
