Do you know that organizations incurred an expense of about 1 billion dollars per week as compensation to employees in safety-related casualties? This figure was cited by the U.S. Department of Labor. Most workplace injuries and costs incurred by organizations can be avoided if employees are trained on basic safety requirements.
