Introduction
Most companies track the cost of accidents by tracking things such as worker’s compensation claims and general medical costs for surgery or rehabilitation, but as noted above, the direct costs are only a small part of the bigger picture. The direct costs of an injury are the easiest to see and understand but are literally just the tip of the iceberg. The indirect costs can be best described as all unbudgeted costs associated with an injury in order to get the employee back to pre-injury status. A company experiencing an employee injury with direct costs of $5,000.00 is expected to carry Indirect costs of approximately $20,000.00 bringing the total cost to $25,000.00. Based on a profi t margin of 10%, it would take the same company $250,000.00 of revenue creation (and collection) to offset the expense.
