Counting the (safety) Costs

The Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair (CCAR) and Tuning in to Safety author Tony Martin have partnered for an informative webinar, originally held on Wednesday, January 29th.
Many business owners lack awareness of the magnitude of the costs related to a workplace injury. The direct costs are expensive by themselves but the indirect costs, also known as hidden costs, can be staggering and arent typically covered by insurance. This webinar is intended to provide the business owner with information that can help them make better decisions regarding  the role that safety will play in their future plans.
