Safety, Health And Return to
Employment Initiative
Why it matters…
   168,174 injuries nationwide

   $2.36 billion dollars in benefits

   2.1 million Lost Production Days
        Costs
        Hidden costs
What makes a difference?
   Fewer injuries equal
      More workers for higher productivity
      Happier employees
      Less money spent on compensation and replacement workers


   Timely filing of claims reduces time off work
      Faster action by OWCP
      Less claimant frustration
      Earlier medical treatment


   Return-to-work saves
      Less money spent on compensation
      More workers equal higher productivity
      Employees feel valued
                         $$$$
 A 3% reduction in total injuries and in lost
  time injuries would result in a savings to
  the government of approximately $41
  million in 2004 alone!*
 Millions to be saved in injury
  compensation costs.

    * Using National Safety Council average costs for 1998,
       includes direct and indirect costs, excludes property
                             damage.
