Accident Awareness

Don't allow your worst fears to come true!

Last year alone, 47 people were killed in work related accidents, with many thousands more injured. To find out why workplace safety and health makes sense, not nonsense, 

Accidents cost money & damage your reputations!

A case study conducted by the Health and Safety Authority where twenty workplace accidents were investigated from various work sectors and locations around Ireland. The term accident was broadly defined and includes stress and violence related incidents The average cost of the twelve middle-range accidents was approximately €52,000. The costs found were in almost all cases underestimates as productivity losses (with one exception) were not recorded by employers.

Employer costs from the accidents included salary costs for replacement staff or overtime payments, production and productivity losses, retraining costs, personal injury claim compensation, repair bills, medical & travel expenses and increased supervision. Salary costs were the largest cost category, being nearly half (45%) of total losses.

Resentment towards the employer from the injured employee was also
reported. Over one-third of the injured employees reported a ‘significant’ or ‘large’ amount of resentment towards the employer after the accident.  HSA 2021
