Safety Topics For Reducing Workplace Accidents.
The worst workplace accidents are the ones that could have been avoided. To help prevent injuries in the workplace, you should consider conducting routine Toolbox Talks. These safety topics help to educate and train employees for safety in your workplace.

A wise man once proclaimed, with his hand held high and all five fingers spread apart, “The Five P’s! Prior proper planning prevents problems.” Is it time for you to start incorporating the five P’s on your team?
The most common causes of accidents in the workplace could seem like obvious no-brainers to most of us. Without frequent reminders, however, it can be easy to forget routine safety training habits. Think about the type of person that keeps a gallon of water with them at all times, following faded Sharpie marks on the container to track one’s daily hydration.
This may seem silly, inconvenient, and just plain odd to some, but it is effective and often we all can use reminders to do the most basic of tasks. The same principle goes for a toolbox talk at your safety meetings. While safety training may seem obvious and redundant at times, continual positive reinforcement for good behavior can be the difference-maker for preventing common and potentially severe injuries to employees, helping to keep associates happy and healthy.

Direct & Indirect Costs For Workplace Accidents.
The price of workplace injuries and illnesses include many different direct and indirect costs that are easy to miss.
Direct costs include workers' compensation payments, medical expenses, and costs for legal services. It’s estimated that Employers pay nearly $1 billion per week for direct workers' compensation costs alone.
ONE BILLION DOLLARS.

Examples of indirect costs include training replacement employees, accident investigation and implementation of corrective measures, lost productivity, repairs of damaged equipment and property, and costs associated with lower employee morale and absenteeism.
