A workplace injury claim costs on average $40,000*. Yet, this is only the direct cost. A host of indirect costs, including production delays, wage interruptions, administrative fees, OSHA violations, endless hours of paperwork, and higher insurance premiums push the overall cost significantly higher. According to a Harvard study, every dollar spent on direct costs is accompanied by indirect costs of over $2.12.
That $40,000 claim actually costs more than $120,000!
