Embracing safety and health as a cornerstone of sustainability is good for workers and good for business. A stronger commitment to safety and health can benefit workers by decreasing the number of illnesses, injuries and fatalities; increasing their engagement and satisfaction; and enabling them to be productive participants in the organization and their communities.
When emphasizing the safety, health and welfare of workers, businesses also see benefits in decreased costs associated with workers’ compensation payments, training and recruitment; increased productivity and quality; and improved reputational and financial performance.
In the U.S., occupational illnesses, injuries and fatalities cost the economy an estimated $200 billion annually. This provides a tremendous impetus for innovative strategies and industry leadership for advancing workplace protections and enhancing organizational performance by leveraging the power of the sustainability movement.
Integrating safety and health into sustainability strategies can transform an organization into one that strives to protect the environment for future generations, ensures longterm economic viability and allows all people to thrive.
