Why Get Certified
Why certification? Workplace injuries and illnesses by the numbers:
- 8 million –approximate number of nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses that were reported in 2018
- 900,000 – workforce members who lost at least one day due to workplace injury or illness (US Bureau of Labor and Statistics, 2018 reporting from private industry employers)
- $1 billion dollars – approximate cost in direct US workers compensation costs for employers
- Obtaining this certification will improve your company’s safety performance – and your business results!
As a company’s safety performance improves, employee engagement increases, and vice versa:
And employee engagement drive business success. Gallup, Inc. has studied the impact of employee engagement on business success. In Gallup’s 2017 report, State of the American Workplace, Gallup compared the business performance results of companies with the highest and lowest levels of employee engagement. Those companies with highly-engaged employees outperformed those companies with the lowest levels of employee engagement in the following key business metrics:
- 70% fewer employee safety incidents
- 41% lower absenteeism
- 40% fewer quality defects
- 21% higher profitability
- 20% higher sales
- 17% higher productivity
- 10% higher customer satisfaction
Safety performance drives employee engagement, and employee engagement drives improved business results!

“If you want to be the best in the world at whatever you do, it begins with worker safety.” – Paul H. O’Neill, ALCOA chairman & CEO and U.S. Secretary of Treasury
O’Neill was chairman and CEO of the Pittsburgh industrial giant Alcoa from 1987 to 1999, and retired as chairman at the end of 2000. At the beginning of his tenure O’Neill encountered significant resistance from the Board of Directors due to his stance on prioritizing worker safety. The company’s market value increased from $3 billion in 1986 to $27.53 billion in 2000, while net income increased from $200 million to $1.484 billion.
