NIOSH Web Tool Demonstrates that in Mining, Safety Pays

Safety Pays in Mining - a new, free web tool from NIOSH - shows mining companies the cost of worker injuries.
This tool offers mining companies information on not only the cost of injury claims, but a few suggestions on how that same money might be spent in other ways.
Preventing injuries saves workers from pain and disability and saves companies money at the same time. Injuries on the job profoundly affect mining companies’ profits and daily operations. In addition to paying direct costs or increased premiums for workers’ compensation insurance, mining companies might need to pay for overtime for other workers to fill an injured worker’s role, cover training costs for a replacement worker or divert administrative resources in the wake of an injury.
