Is our working environment safe?
As per the International Labour Organization, every 15 seconds, a worker dies from a work-related accident or disease. Every 15 seconds, 153 workers have a work-related accident. Every day, 6,300 people die as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases – more than 2.3 million deaths per year. 317 million accidents occur on the job annually; many of these resulting in extended absences from work. The human cost of this daily adversity is vast and the economic burden of poor occupational safety and health practices is estimated at 4 per cent of global Gross Domestic Product each year.
The indirect costs of accidents are usually greater than the direct costs. A conservative estimate of losses for every $1 of direct accident costs, there is $3 of indirect costs. Some studies indicate the hidden costs can be 4 to 10 times the insured costs. Indirect costs to consider include :
- Time lost from work by injured employee
- Lost time by fellow employees
- Damage to tools, equipment, and other property
- Loss of production / Loss of business opportunity
- Spoilage – fire, water, chemical, debris, etc
- Administrative and legal costs
- Changes to insurance premium / loan settlement terms
- Loss of company image
Just as there are many hidden costs due to accidents, there are hidden savings in accident prevention. For this reason, the phrase “loss control” is often used in safety management. Every accident you prevent save direct and indirect accident costs – affecting your bottom line. Other benefits of accident prevention efforts include:
- Safe / uninjured employees
- Minimum damage / Loss to properties and material
- Production supervisors/managers can focus
- efforts on other projects
- Increased employee security at work
