Well trained staff are more likely to stay, reducing staff turnover, they are also more efficient at their job and present a better image of the organisation to outside companies.

These human costs are very difficult to quantify, but their true costs are much more expensive in real terms than cash, it should be everyone's aim to reduce the likleihood of accidents occurring through good training and effective management
