Some people might say “True,” because they consider safety to be a necessary part of doing business, and like operating costs and overhead it just takes away from the profit margin – it doesn’t make money. But, they couldn’t be more WRONG! In fact, many safety professionals and business owners agree that safety does make money because the return on such investments are increasing marketability, productivity, and profitability. Furthermore, numerous case studies and academic research also support this idea. For example, one study found a 65% degree of overlap between improvements in safety and productivity improvements. In other words, when safety was improved productivity also improved, though to a lesser degree, which increased profits for the company (Stewart & Townsend, 1999).
