The OSHA website features a calculator tool that can help determine a margin loss scenario resulting from an injury. Calculating the total costs of a single laceration injury is staggering. A cut on the finger that would have been preventable with the right PPE solution can lead to a $40K total cost, with an estimated $400K in future sales needed to pay for it! Escalate the injury to a fracture and the numbers nearly triple.
This is not a sales pitch, it’s basic math: Buying cheaper PPE is detrimental to your corporate bottom line. It cuts the immediate and direct cost of a good, while potentially skyrocketing the overall indirect operational costs. Armed with this knowledge, how can you help your company meet its financial targets?
