But why are we talking about this on a blog typically related to training, safety, and production efficiency, you ask? Well, partly to indulge my desire to listen to some classic R&B and rock tunes while at work, of course. But also because a new study has shown a link between the operational safety and health of companies and their financial bottom-line.
That’s right. Even though there’s no need to justify safety—it’s the right goal in and of itself—this study shows a link between good safety and health records and stronger stock market performance.
