Fall Protection ROI Calculator

Fall Protection ROI Calculator

Many employers mistakenly view fall protection as an expense rather than an investment.  The fall protection calculator takes aim at this way of thinking by helping employers assess the financial impact of falls on company profitability.  The calculator uses the average costs of a fall and an indirect cost multiplier to project the amount of sales required at your current profit margins to offset the costs of falls. Data on average claim costs is provided by the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) and the National Safety Council’s Injury Facts reports.


  • The Fall Protection ROI Calculator is a planning tool designed to estimate how falls can adversely impact a company’s profitability–it is not intended to provide a comprehensive analysis of your company’s financial exposure fall related injuries.
  • Diversified Fall Protection makes no guarantees nor assumes any liability for the accuracy of the results obtained through the use of  this tool.

The extent to which the employer pays the direct costs depends on the nature of the employer's worker's compensation insurance policy. The employer always pays the indirect costs.
