Why should you implement a family safety and health program?
It's the right thing to do.
While companies have a legal responsibility to prevent occupational injuries and deaths, they have a moral responsibility to try and prevent injuries and promote wellness away from the job.
It creates good will and good publicity.
A company that cares for its employees after they leave work is showing a commitment to the community - which reflects well on the company.
It offers a recruiting edge.
Family safety and health programs are an additional benefit that can be used to attract and retain employees.
It saves money.
Operating costs and production schedules are affected as much when employees are ill or injured away from work as when they are injured on the job.
Returns on investment in integrated employee wellness programs have been found to be higher than $5 for every $1 spent with improvements in employee health, reduction in medical benefits expenses and reduction in absenteeism.
