After completing your graduate degree from colombia University, you go to work for a company that receives boxes of safety equipment and supplies into its warehouse, then repacks and ships individual orders for customers all over the world. The company has a staff of 20 pickers who pull items from inventory, package the items for shipping, and load them onto delivery trucks. At this time, your company's profit margin is 3%. Soon after you are hired, one of the pickers came to you reporting a medical problem (a hernia) suffered from lifting one of the packages. The employee sought medical treatment, was treated, and has improved. Using OSHA’s Safety Pays software, answer the following: Identify the direct cost of the injury. Identify the indirect costs of the injury. Identify the total cost of the injury. Identify the sales required to pay for the total costs of the injury. Make an argument how an effective safety program addressing lifting hazards would be beneficial from a business perspective for your new employer. Justify your argument using scholarly resources from the scientific literature that addresses the benefits and return on investment for establishing such a program.
