“No task is so important that an employee must risk injury or illness to get it done,” says John Maitland, claims manager for New Seasons Market. A commitment to providing a safe workplace for all employees, along with the decision to include a Safety In Motion® trainer at all 21 stores in 2018, drove a 29% drop in sprain and strain injuries in one year. For all you data buffs out there: That’s a cost savings of about $180,000.
“We are working toward and committed to moving safety from being an item or topic of priority to an important and integral part of our culture,” Maitland says.
