The following resources address how accounting for employee safety in the design stage of a project may result in fewer injuries and illnesses and increased productivity. Organizations that eliminate or reduce hazards by making design or engineering changes generally improve their workplace safety and health and save money in the long run. For example, an organization that spends money up front to design out a workplace safety hazard will often save money through reduced training costs, less need for personal protective equipment, and the savings associated with fewer workplace injuries and illnesses.
