Study: Safety inspections don’t hurt the bottom line

A new study suggests that random safety inspections by regulators help reduce injury claims without hurting profits. In a decade-long look at hundreds of California work sites, researchers found that inspected companies reduced their injury claims by 9.4% compared to those not inspected. Also, the same companies saved an average of 26% on workers' compensation costs in the four years following an inspection when compared with similar firms that were not randomly inspected.
