Do you have any idea how much a lacerated finger or back sprain can cost your company? Safety Pays in Mining — a new, free web app from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) — can help you find out.

Safety Pays in Mining not only gives you the cost of injury claims, but also reports the most common injuries and work activities by commodity, shows how selected injuries can impact profits, and offers suggestions on how that same money might be spent if injury was prevented. The web app is available on the NIOSH Mining webpage at https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/mining/content/economics/safetypays.html.
