The money they spend on keeping their employees safe will be nothing compared to lawsuits that will happen when employees get hurt at work. They also want to keep them safe to reduce the number of health claims employees make during the year.
We are in a very pro-employee time right now and it's only going to get more pro-employee with this presidential administration so employers have to what ever they can to keep their employees safe and happy.
Keeping good talent is very hard to do so you want to do all you can to attract and keep the employees that will grow your profits. Being a dick about safety will only drive them away.
