No matter what kind of projects you oversee, most companies can use extra safety personnel at some point. However, you may not be able to justify the need for a full-time staff. This is where a safety staffing agency, such as ResponsAble, can provide you with the temporary employees you need to help with a wide variety of your safety needs.
We believe that building a close relationship with a staffing agency can help ensure that workers possess the skills, training and experience that is needed to meet your needs. Over the years, we’ve seen what can happen to companies that try to handle their staffing in house or work with general staffing agencies. The risks can seriously hurt your pocketbook, so choose your safety staffing strategy wisely.
The Risks of NOT Outsourcing Safety Staffing:
- Turnover Costs
The statistics are staggering:
- Over 50% of people recruited will leave within 2 years
- 1 in 4 new employees will leave within 6 months
- Over 50% of organizations experience regular turnover
- Nearly 70% of organizations report difficulty in replacing staff
This overwhelming attrition has a negative financial impact due to the cost of recruiting, hiring, training a replacement employee, and the overtime work of the current employees that is required until the vacant position is filled.
Estimates place attrition costs at an unbelievable 125% of salary.
You can’t afford to halt your entire job until you have recruited, trained and on-boarded a new position. And we can all agree that safety postions are NOT the jobs for which you want to speed folks through training.
- Injuries and Related Costs
The cost of workplace injuries, illnesses and deaths is much greater than the cost of insurance alone. A comprehensive safety and health program reduces insurance rates, improves the work environment, and reduces overall injury expense.
For the employer, a safe workplace not only protects the workers from injury (which should be the number one priority), but it can also lower the cost due to injury or illness, reduce the incidents of absenteeism and turnover, increase productivity and raise employee morale.
Without the safety processes in place, the cost to a business could include:
- Loss of production
- Increased workers’ compensation insurance costs
- Damage to equipment and machinery
- Increased training and hiring costs due to high turnover
- Lost work time
- Decline in worker morale
These losses can be avoided by allowing us, the safety specialists, to do this part of the job for you!
