An effectively managed safety and health program may result in lower costs for management, and healthier, happier, and more loyal employees. But a poorly managed (or non-existent) program can significantly increase the likelihood that work-related accidents, injuries, or illnesses would occur. This, in turn, may raise the company's workers' compensation premium rates and the frequency of employee absenteeism. Thus, any company that is serious about managing people effectively must get serious about managing risk. Mismanagement of employee safety is a risk you do not want to take.
This course provides general information about workers' compensation laws and discusses ways to handle employee safety and health issues.
