Because workplace accident are avoidable, expensive and; at the end of the day no ones family should receive that call. Any company worth doing business will tell you that. I am a trained Critical Care Rd I have advised majotcorporations on this very question and safety was the only concern. As far as I am concerned, those that argued for nay were be an counters that really had no measurable education the impact workplace accidents have. This really is a no brainer to anyone with a qualified mind.
