A

Accident and ill health costs and losses

Organizations are generally good at measuring the costs of an accident and ill-health prevention. Making health and safety improvements, however, may be restricted due to the need to stay within a defined safety budget (see safety budgets). All accidents and ill health, however, represent considerable losses to an organization. They include losses:
a) of a direct nature, such as fines levied in a court, following prosecution; or
b) indirect costs, such as those associated with time lost by a variety
of people, such as managers, employees, first aid staff, and the injured person, following an accident at work.

Accident and ill health costing

One way of assessing the losses associated with accidents and ill health is through the operation of an accident costing exercise carried out over a specific period of time, such as six months. This will enable the organization to identify both the direct and indirect costs of accidents, such as fines imposed by a court, repairing damage to structural items, replacement of work equipment, and the cost of replacement labor.
