Why maximise physical and psychological safety?

Physical and psychological injuries and illnesses are costly to businesses. The direct dollar value lost in productivity is obvious, but the indirect consequences on the people and the business are also staggering. In Australia, the direct and indirect costs associated with workplace injury and illness stands at more than $60 billion, annually.

Ensuring that your most important asset, your people, are protected from physical risks, as well as psychological risks is, and should be a business imperative. Commitment to safeguarding employee’s physical and psychological safety from the dangers at work ensures more than just a smooth business operation, it’s critical to business success.

Focusing on maximising the physical and psychological safety of employees provides attractive return on investment for the business. It is predicted that $1 invested in injury prevention returns between $2 and $6 for the organisation.

The business case on return on investment is obvious. When people feel safe physically and psychologically, they can focus on the tasks at hand. They work more efficiently, make fewer mistakes, and are more engaged and productive. Conversely, when people feel their health and wellbeing are at risk, they are unhappy at work, and are less productive.
