They say you can't put a price on safety, but if you're in charge of safety budgets, you know that's not true. When it's time to equip or replace your company's safety gear, the cost is spelled out in neat columns on your spreadsheet. Here you move numbers around, trying this trick or that to ensure that expenditure numbers match budget numbers and you're in the black. After all, you don't want to spend more than you have to. However, this approach only considers one part of the equation. If your calculations don't account for the price of injuries, you're not getting the whole picture.
