Workplace injuries are a significant risk for any business, and they can lead to incredibly costly medical bills, lost productivity and increased insurance premiums. There are a variety of strategies employers can implement to reduce on-the-job accidents and the impact of job conditions on employee health. They may not all make sense for your business, but consider the following ideas to help minimize or prevent injuries altogether.
