Beside severe effects on the individual, all types of workplace injuries can also represent particularly serious drawbacks for a company’s business performance.

Workplace Injuries Are Still a Big Problem

In 2015, there were approximately 2.9 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses such as burns, lacerations, cuts and fractures as well as latex and chemical allergies reported by private industry employers in the U.S.1 The previous year in the EU-28 zone, there were close to 3.2 million nonfatal accidents.2

Beside severe effects on the individual, all types of injuries can also represent particularly serious drawbacks for a company’s business performance. The associated direct costs of an injury range from medical expenses to rehabilitation costs and workers’ compensation, whereas indirect costs are caused by replacement workers, accident investigation, productivity loss and demotivation of workers.

In addition, global and local trends have an impact on your company’s economic performance, such as:

• Increased health and safety standards and regulations

• Increased focus on sustainability and waste reduction

• Vendor standardization and consolidation

• Global standardization in supplies and processes

The resulting demands for compliance, consolidation and simplification necessitate rapid changes and are forcing companies to find new ways to reduce PPE costs without sacrificing worker safety.
