    You can also see it in terms of risk mitigation. For example, how much is it worth to avoid a mistake by a member of your workforce that could lead injuries - or worse, death? Or to avoid an OSHA fine? We could go on and on, but you get the idea.

    We also think it's a bargain because, well – it is! The value of our 15 Essential Insights alone is $435 when purchased individually. Add in our Safety Training Kits, Practical Tools, digital newsletter and other INSIDER features and the total value of our content if sold separately is close to $2,500.
