Shane Crouse, from Pride Manufacturing said “Safety and health has a tremendous value to it. …You’re not hurting the person on the job. When that person gets hurt, you have to replace him with somebody that might not be as well trained …your production or your quality might suffer. You’re not having the expense of worker’s comp and medical bills associated with that. It is certainly a better working environment if people aren’t afraid of what they are doing. A couple of years ago we really started trying hard; we were in control of our medical costs and workers comp costs and over the past 2-3 years, we’ve reduced that dramatically… almost $200,000.” – (source)
