What Is a Workplace Safety Program?
Overview, Statistics, and Costs
A workplace safety program is intended to be a proactive process to help businesses and employers locate, identify, and fix workplace hazards before they lead to injury or death.
These programs are nothing new – with the creation of OSHA in 1971 came the progressive mission of increasing the safety of workers across the nation. Since OSHA’s inception, workplace injury and fatality rates have been cut by more than 60%.
