DELIVERING EXPERT MACHINE SAFETY SOLUTIONS
As a senior safety leader, you know that establishing a safety program in your workplace is one of the most effective ways of protecting your most valuable asset: your workers. Establishing a comprehensive machine safety program in your workplace is one of the most effective ways of protecting your human capital and improving your return-on-investment (ROI).
The National Safety Council (NSC) set the total cost to society of occupational injuries and deaths at $151. 1 billion and OSHA estimates a 6:1 ratio in saved dollars for every one dollar invested in safety. Your safety leadership provides the vision and resources needed to make safety and health a core organization value. Rather than reacting to an incident, leaders identify and solve issues before they occur, thereby reducing risk and improving rofitability. Rockford Systems can help your organization find the ideal balance between maximizing employee safety and earning a positive ROI with RS360 Machine Safety Lifecycle Management Solutions.
