Why Develop a Business Case?
You may need to build a business case to obtain the resources needed to develop or improve your Occupational Road Safety (ORS) Program. Your business case should appeal to the following management responsibilities:
Reducing crashes decreases the costs related to:
- WorkSafeBC and vehicle insurance premiums
- Loss of productivity
- Worker absenteeism
Use the online MVI Cost Calculator to identify the direct and indirect costs associated with the type(s) of motor vehicle incidents typically experienced within your organization. A true picture of MVI costs can provide compelling rationale.
Employers are legally responsible for protecting the health and safety of their employees in the workplace. This includes workers who drive for work, even occasionally.
An ORS Program provides safety for both employees and the public. This benefits society as a whole and provides evidence of corporate responsibility.
An organization’s public image is a key success factor. For example, vehicles with company logos have a strong influence on the way the public views your organization.
