The Business Case for Safety and Health

Those working in the occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS) field understand the basic importance and value of their efforts for workers, employers, and overall society. Many partners of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) cite real-world examples of cost savings and business advantages realized by companies with strong OEHS programs. How then do we get the rest of the business community to better appreciate the return on investment in OEHS? One way NIOSH is attempting to make the business case for OEHS is through a new course developed with the National Safety Council (NSC) and the Williams College of Business at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio, for MBA students entitled "Business Value of Safety and Health."
