A new National Safety Council report reflects the growing costs of Slips/Falls and more
January 18, 2019
As a new report from the National Safety Council shows, costs for the most expensive workplace claims continue to be alarming. One of the most expensive once again is Slips/Falls, which averages in excess of $46,000 per incident. This according to the Jan 2019 edition of Safety & Health, The Official Magazine of the NSC Congress & Expo.
Also of interest is the NSC finding on occupational disease & cumulative injury, which reportedly costs near $36,000 per claim and would likely include incidents such as; hearing damage or loss, and injuries resulting from air quality, back injuries, and more.
At MākuSafe, we anticipate that an insurer, or industrial end user organization, can cover scores of employees for far less than the costs of having one incident.
