Time & Attendance

Although safety has evolved remarkably over the past 90 years, risks will always remain. In one high-profile accident in 2010, for instance, 29 coal miners died in an explosion in Montcoal, West Virginia. So while the workplace is much safer than it was in 1922, that doesn’t mean workplace dangers have been eliminated.
The bottom line is a work environment is only as safe as a company makes it. For today’s businesses, there are some clear benefits to identifying policies and practices focused on a safer workplace.
