The reality is that workplace hazards are just as common on construction sites and in restaurants as they are in an office setting. During this month, companies are encouraged to review, update and introduce new safety procedures. According to the National Safety Council, every 7 seconds a worker is injured on the job. Workplace injuries have a ripple effect on a businesses’ bottom line, affecting everything from a decrease in productivity, an increase in absences, missed deadlines and significant medical costs and other expenses.
