HOW DOES ONE INJURY IMPACT YOUR BOTTOM LINE?
Direct medical costs are only the beginning of the bottom-line impacts of a worker’s injury. While emergency room and doctor visits, medical bills, medicines, and rehabilitation may be the most visible costs, the indirect costs of an injury generally total between four and ten times the amount of the direct costs. For example, a $2,500 clinic visit could easily end up costing your business $10,000 in indirect costs such as lost productivity, administrative time, insurance increases, OSHA involvement, morale, reputation risk, and media attention.
