One Hundred Seventy Billion Dollars Per Year Associated with Occupational Illnesses and Injuries

One Hundred Seventy Billion Dollars Per Year Associated with Occupational Illnesses and Injuries

PRLog - July 23, 2014 - In the whitepaper "Forklift-Free: Driving Safety and Profitability” it is reported that when injuries occur the impact is substantial. According to The American Society of Safety Engineers, businesses spend $170 billion a year on costs associated with occupational illnesses and injuries. Employers spend billions on wages and medical care. OSHA reported lost productivity in the workplace costs companies $60 billion each year. Such productivity losses paired with expensive medical and wage payments greatly affect bottom-line performance.

The whitepaper includes an intensive thought-provoking analysis and objective data about employee injuries and deaths, cost burdens associated with forklift accidents and citations. There is also information about high labor wages, expensive training programs, and scarce labor availability and manufacturers' unsaleable rates.  The information included examines lean alternative for manned forklift transport as part of continuous process improvement strategies.
