We all want what’s best for our businesses and employees. That’s why most employers understand the importance of focusing on safety. Sure, safety training and resources cost both time and money. But the longer-term savings of mitigating risks are worth it. Safer employers generally have lower insurance costs. They have fewer time loss injuries that can drain productivity. They have fewer lower risk of reputation and morale damage. However, for many small and medium sized businesses, the realities of time and financial costs can make this math more elusive.

But it doesn’t matter what kind of industry you’re in. Ensuring the health and safety of your staff is a core part of every employer’s duty. Every industry, from retail to construction, and every class of worker from office personnel to landscapers, bear risk. Those risks can act like fires. Left unattended, they can spread and cause catastrophic losses. Also, unless you have the right tools, even small fires can weigh down your business over the long term.

Safety Doesn’t Happen by Accident

As with HR, managing workplace safety hazards and complying with safety regulations can be confusing and time consuming. Many managers and owners just don’t have the time to navigate those complex rules all on their own. Nor do they have the budget to spend on stand-alone safety resources and consulting. 

So that leaves small businesses with a few options. They can bite the bullet and pay for expensive resources awkwardly scaled outside their niche. Or, they can cross their fingers and hope nothing bad happens and face the financial, productivity, and human costs of inaction. Fortunately, there is a third option.
