Injury rates

Companies engaged with the Alliance for 5 or more years reduced lost-time injuries by more than 50%.

 Injury rates are trending in the right direction in BC manufacturing. But in BC more than 400 injuries still happen on the job every day. An effective safety program is a basic building block for sustainable business, impacting your workplace culture, and your brand reputation and financial results.

That’s where the Alliance comes in.
