Print Safety & Loss Prevention We all recognize that the best way to control workers’ compensation costs is to prevent injuries in the workplace. Fewer injuries mean no lost time, increased productivity and no costly workers’ compensation claims to manage. At NYSIF, we are committed to helping New York employers maintain a safe, healthy workplace and promote safe work practices. Why is management commitment so important to the success of a safety program? Why have a safety policy statement and safety committee? What about safety training? How do safety surveys help prevent accidents? Why is accident investigation so critical?
