Incident Cost Calculator

Official Description  

“What does a workplace incident really cost?  While you can’t put a price on a worker’s health and well-being, you should know the financial cost of a workplace incident.  By uncovering the obvious – and not-so-obvious – costs of an incident, this calculator uses sample accident and injury scenarios from a number of industries to show why a safe workplace is good business. “1

Thumbs Up

  • cost is free
  • no registration or sign in required
  • great instructions and instructional videos
  • developed in Canada, but can be used in any other country with any monetary system
  • extremely detailed with 6-pages of information that you are required to input on each accident
  • six industry presets
  • custom analysis available that’s based on your own hours and pay-rates
  • this puts OSHA’s “Safety Pays on-line accident cost calculator to shame
  • can email completed summaries to interested parties

Thumbs Down

  •  no identifiable shortcomings – this app does only one thing,  but it does it extremely well
