Be it in small or large amount, risk is involved in every workplace 

Many employers neglect to provide any kind of health and safety training to their employees assuming that there is not much risk involved in their line of work. The truth is something else. A risk is involved in all kind of work, be it handling heavy machinery or handling heavy packages and liquids. So your employees should have the right knowledge of protecting themselves.

Accidents at a workplace are a great cost to the company.  The employees have to bear the litigation cost, fines, compensation, and medical expenses in cases of accidents.  As an employer, you will also need to bear the indirect cost that includes disrupted work schedules, productivity loss, repairing cost and replacing workers.

Avoid a potential compensation claim or suit 

Compensation claims in case of worker injury can prove deadly for you if you are on the wrong side of the law by overlooking the training and the courses required by the law. Not only the workers are interested in knowing what the company offers in terms of benefits and salaries, they are also interested to know what plans the company has for their safety and health.
