Workplace safety is important.  An injured employee often faces a financial burden in addition to the physical pain and suffering associated with an injury.  The company suffers financial distress due to the employee being out because of the injury and possible OSHA fines.  Overall employee morale can be reduced because of an unsafe workplace as well.
