According to a report by the National Business Research Institute, the cost of a bad hire can range from 30% to 150% of that employee’s annual salary. This includes costs associated with recruiting, onboarding, training, and lost productivity. In labor-related jobs, the cost of a bad hire can be even higher due to the risk of injury and workers’ compensation claims.
A study by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration found that the average cost of a workers’ compensation claim for a serious injury was $41,000. Hiring the wrong person for a physically demanding job could lead to serious injuries and a significant financial burden for the company.
The best way to preserve the health and safety of your team is to ensure that everyone is working within their capacities and with proper form.
Pre-work screenings will identify potential problems before they become major issues for your team.
These screens are used to:
- qualify or disqualify a person for a task
- identify potential issues that could result in an injury
- create a plan to mitigate injury
