OSHA’s “$afety Pays”
OSHA’s “$afety Pays” program can help employers assess the impact of occupational injuries and illnesses on their profitability. This program uses a company’s profit margin, the average costs of an injury or illness, and an indirect cost multiplier to project the amount of sales a company would need to cover those costs. The program is intended as a tool to raise awareness of how occupational injuries and illnesses can impact a company’s profitability, not to provide a detailed analysis of a particular company’s occupational injury and illness costs.

These tools can be used regularly (i.e., weekly) to promote safety culture, serve as a reminder of workers’ duties and responsibilities, as well as to facilitate health and safety discussions.
Tips for an effective Safety Toolbox Talk:
- Encourage everyone to participate and discuss from their own experiences and knowledge
- Focus on only one safety and health subject per talk
- Be specific with the recommended actions for hazard controls and safe work behaviors – avoid general statements!
- Incorporate real work situations
- Allow sufficient time for questions and answers
