As our personal injury solicitors know only too well, regrettably accidents in the workplace are almost all avoidable.
Most companies are learning more and more that safety precautions and protocols are good for business, as well as being necessary for the well-being of the team, and avoiding any unnecessary personal injury claim.
When a company has a good safety program in place, accidents and personal injuries are more easily avoided. This improves the morale within the business and everybody can get on with their day to day tasks. It also makes a business more attractive for new talent to want to work with that company. Other businesses will see that and in turn, they too will be attracted to a well run business.
Insurance policy premiums become more reasonably priced when good safety measures are in place. It stands to reason that the fewer personal injuries and accidents that occur, the easier it will be for an insurance company to have confidence in the business. Many industry-based businesses take pride in the amount of days it has been since an accident has occurred on their premises. This is often recognised and encouraged by insurance companies.
