In October 1987, Paul O’Neill became CEO of Alcoa. O’Neill, who would later serve as President George W. Bush’s Secretary of the Treasury, launched a comprehensive worker safety initiative. When O’Neill retired 13 years later, his worker safety initiative had led to changes that quintupled Alcoa’s income. By changing this important feature of how Alcoa did business, O’Neill transformed an industry giant.
Many safety and compliance issues happen because employers try to cut corners. In an effort to keep expenses down, they take shortcuts that put workers at risk. These actions are what the old saying refers to as “penny wise and pound foolish.” They save a few dollars today, but they expose you to millions of dollars in future liabilities.
Smart business owners know that a safe working environment is crucial to creating a long-lasting business. Spending a few thousand dollars on a safety improvement today is nothing compared to paying millions in damages to an injured worker tomorrow. When you consider working with a safety compliance company like National PEO, think of it as an investment in your business future. Create a company that’s built to last, just like Paul O’Neill did, by making safety your top priority.
