Why Should We Care about Off-The-Job Safety?

Summer's here, and so is vacation season. Many of you will be taking some time off to relax and leave the pressures of your jobs behind. But there's one thing you don't want to hang up with your work clothes. As your thoughts turn to vacation trips, outdoor recreation, and evening cookouts, you want to be thinking about safety, too. Here's why:

  • The National Safety Council estimates that nearly two-thirds of disabling injuries to workers each year occur off the job.

  • Despite the fact that those injuries and deaths are not job related, they impact the workplace due to medical expenses, sick leave and disability, and the costs of lost productivity and hiring and training replacement workers.

  • In fact, many experts believe that the costs of off-the-clock injuries are equal to or greater than the cost of job-related injuries.

So before you head off to enjoy your summer vacations this year, why not take a little time to think about off-the-job safety!

Remember safety is important 24/7, 365 days of the year!
