Office Safety

Employers are responsible for their workers safety and health whether staffs are based in the office or at home. Providing safety and health information and basic training is a legal requirement.

office safetyThe risk of injury to office workers is much lower than to industrial (blue collar) workers. Because of this, office risks often go unrecognized, yet they could lead to serious personal injury or an office disaster.

 

The attitude that office accidents do not amount to much is one of the prime causes of office accidents. The average office worker gives little thought to safety because office work is not perceived as hazardous, and no accidents have occurred in years.

 

Types of accidents common to office workers

  • Falls
  • Floor surface (Watch out for recently waxed floors, also loose carpeting, floorboards and tiles.)
  • Wet Floors
  • Stairway and walkways accidents
  • Doors and Drawer accidents
  • Filing cabinets, shelves and storage accidents
