March 19, 2010 -The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) will kick off a major campaign, "Safety Pays," on Tuesday, March 23, 2010, at 11:30 a.m., at the MSU Henry Center for Executive Development, in Lansing.
The theme of the campaign is: Protect Workers…Pay Yourself. The National Safety Council estimates a worker injury with NO lost time costs $7,000 on average. A company must sell extra product to cover the accident costs.
Rob De Ward, Safety Director, Kamminga & Roodvoets, Inc., Grand Rapids, and Vince Griffin, Safety Director, RAM Construction Services, Inc., Livonia, will share how protecting their workers resulted in significant savings to their companies.
The Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Michigan is holding their annual Michigan Construction Safety Training Day in Lansing at the MSU Henry Center on March 23rd. MIOSHA will unveil the new "Safety Pays" campaign during the lunch session.
