The Cost of Inexperience
- Nearly half of workers comp claims come from workers with less than a year of experience
- About 30% of these claims are from workers on the job for less than 6 months
- 24% of construction workers are injured in their first year on the job
Comprehensive training is key to eliminating much of the cost associated with inexperienced operators. Similarly, the Construction Industry Institute (CII) states that investing in training yields a very tangible return on investment. According to CII, each dollar invested in training can generate up to a 200% return through increased productivity, and decreased turnover, absenteeism, and rework.
