April is Injury Prevention Month, which makes this the perfect time to do some serious awareness training and show employees exactly how to prevent injuries in the workplace. Employees injured in accidents often pay a heavy price. Injuries can be painful, disabling, and even fatal. There is also the economic cost, which results in workers’ comp claims and lost productivity. Every year employers lose millions of work hours and billions of dollars because of workplace injuries. Anything a company can do to prevent job injuries is time and money well spent.
