Once again, nonprofits are at core, businesses. With nonprofits, however, the fluctuation of income with the ebb and flow of contributions and membership demands efficiency and efficacy in the workplace. Certainly, the work loss as a result of injury on the job (or off) can be costly in both time and money. Ryan Ayers, a freelance business writer, explains seven ways you are able to improve performance and safety.

So how can businesses prevent productivity loss and keep their best employees safe and happy? Here are 7 ways businesses can help prevent productivity loss and improve safety. These can be implemented in many different types of industries and help solve a variety of workplace problems.
