OSHA - Region V


Diosh 2013

Study: OSHA Inspections Reduce Injuries with No Job Loss

  • Harvard & UC Berkeley researchers found:

  • 9.4% drop in injury claims in the 4 years after inspection

  • 26% average savings on workers’ compensation costs

  • $355,000 average savings for an employer (small or large) as a result of an OSHA inspection

  • Study estimates $6 billion in savings to employers nationwide

  • There was no evidence that these improvements came at the expense of employment, sales, credit ratings or firm survival.

  • OSHA doesn’t kill jobs; it helps prevent jobs from killing workers
