prevention is good business. It reduces direct business costs, such as
workers compensation, and improves employee morale, productivity
and quality. As public awareness and government standards for business and industry
have become more stringent, occupational health and safety issues have
moved into the limelight. Progressive business
leaders are paying close attention to workplace safety issues. By stressing prevention over treatment, these
issues have reduced costs and increased productivity.
SPD is a leader in occupational health and safety training
