Why OSHA Compliant Contractors Cost Less in the Grand Scheme


In 2019, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration ran more than 33,000 inspections across the U.S. They conducted even more inspections at the state level, ensuring companies and contractors stay OSHA compliant. And it's important for businesses to follow the rules they set.

They are in place to prevent people from getting injured at work. When people are safe, they are more productive and make the business more money. The costs of court fees and workers' compensation also far exceed any money-saving costs of violating OSHA standards.

Keep reading below to learn more about how following OSHA guidelines saves you money!

Safe Workers Are Productive Workers

When workers know they are safe, they are more focused and are willing to work harder. They understand that managers care about them and want to make sure they go home safely. If they see that managers are invested in their wellbeing, they will feel invested in the wellbeing of the company.

Safe workers are also going to get more done when they don't need to worry about dangerous equipment or other issues. They can simply follow the expectations set out for them, focusing on nothing else but the job at hand.

When Hiring Contractors, People Want The Best

If you are bidding on a new job, expect to be overlooked if you have OSHA violations on your company's record. Clients choose contractors they know they can trust. They want to feel confident that the work will get done with as few issues as possible.

If they see that your company has violated OSHA standards, then they will not feel confident about your ability to get the job done. Even if you're bidding on a job competitively, clients will consider the risk of choosing you. They may go with someone who bids a little higher, but who also does not have OSHA violation reports.

Follow OSHA Standards For Success

Companies want to be successful; they want to make as much money as possible. To do that, they need to be OSHA compliant and always keep the safety of workers in mind. They are performing dangerous and hard work, and they deserve to be treated with respect.

So, following OSHA is the least you can do. And at our company, everyone is treated like family. We watch out for each other, and we make sure we are safely getting jobs done.
