blogEmployees today are expected to do more with less, and safety professionals are no exception. While the business case for safety would seem to be obvious – high injury rates cost money and reduce productivity – getting upper management to commit resources to safety can be challenging if there’s a perception that the cost won’t justify the results.

Nearly every decision a company makes must take into account the potential return on investment (ROI) – or lack thereof. Even when it comes to choosing the products and services that keep workers safer, the same question looms. Returns on safety investments exist in most cases, but they must be understood and presented to management in a clear and concise way.

A gas detection program that protects workers from exposure to hazardous materials can be a substantial investment. Does it – can it – have an ROI? Under what circumstances? And most important, how can a safety professional communicate the benefits of such a program to management?

A free ISHN webinar today, June 26 at 2 p.m. EDT will help answer those questions.

Dave Wagner, Global Director of Product Knowledge & iNet Product Manager for Industrial Scientific will explain the benefits of a complete gas detection protection and how that applies to a company’s bottom line.

This webinar will cover:

  • Why a safe workplace equates to good business
  • Why keeping workers truly safe from hazardous gases requires a complete gas detection program
  • How your investment in a complete gas detection program ensures an ROI to your overall business

The webinar will last 60 minutes and include a Q&A session. Those who can’t attend it live can register and view it on demand.
