Establishing a safety and health program at your job site is one of the most effective ways of protecting workers. Losing workers to injury or illness, even for a short time, can cause significant disruption and cost. It can also cause damage to workplace morale, productivity, turnover, and reputation.
Safety and health programs foster a proactive approach, finding and fixing job site hazards before they cause injury or illness. Rather than reacting to an incident, management and workers collaborate to identify and solve issues before they occur.
