THE COST OF INJURIES TO EMPLOYERS: METHODS SUPPLEMENT
This document describes how the data in "The Cost of Injuries to Employers: A Traffic Safety Compendium" were developed. It covers workplace injury incidence, workplace injury cost, and the injury costs paid by employers for injuries on- and off-the-job. Throughout, highway crash injuries receive special emphasis. Injuries cost employers $181 billion annually, or $1,540 per employee. These costs include injuries that occur on-the-job (work-related) and those that occur off-the-job. Almost one third (29%) of health-related fringe benefit costs paid by employers are generated by injuries to workers and their families. Overall injury accounts for 19% of employers' health care costs and 46% of their disability costs.
