Clothing Industry-Injury Analysis

By | Case Studies, Distribution | No Comments

The analysis of the injury data clearly demonstrates that the IPCS physical capability evaluation program had a dramatic impact on reducing both the frequency and severity of injury as measured by incident rate, total cost of injuries and average cost per injury in comparison to the Not Tested Group for all injuries and exertion injuries. The combination of reducing the frequency of injury and reducing the average cost per injury resulted in greater savings and return-on-investment for the company with the IPCS program. If the IPCS program had been in place during the 24-month period for the Not Tested Group, the net savings minus the cost of the program would have been $513,548.

The combination of reducing the frequency of injury and reducing the average cost per injury resulted in greater savings and return-on-investment for the company with the IPCS program. If the IPCS program had been in place during the 16-month period for the Not Tested Group, the net savings minus the cost of the program would have been $512,973 or a 62% reduction in the actual incurred costs.

The following case study was completed over a 23-month period on a pilot basis for a national gas cylinder distribution company. The case study focused on 5 locations that collectively employed about 200 individuals. The study shows that a company does not need to be a Fortune 1000 to reap the benefits of the IPCS technology. Smaller companies can realize the same return-on-investment by reducing the frequency and severity of injuries through the IPCS program. (Fall, 2005)
