    Compensation for office accidents


    Office accidents aren’t that common, especially when you think of the many thousands of people who go to work in an office of some kind every weekday. It doesn’t matter what work they do or whether they work for a small or large company either. Every worker has the right to be safe whenever they are at their desk or moving around the office.

    You might immediately think of slips, trips and falls when you think about office accidents. Indeed these are often among the more common things that can happen in an office. However there are other potential problems and accidents that might occur at times as well.

    What might happen in your office?

    Think about your office space for a moment. How many potential hazards come to mind? If your employer has done a good job of keeping his or her staff safe and the area free from potential hazards, there should be very few that come to mind. However if they have neglected their duty of care to their employees, you might get a very different answer.

    Some people have been badly hurt in an office accident that has changed their lives. Thankfully office accidents of this severity are very rare and you don’t hear about them too often at all. However they can happen, and even smaller incidents can lead to injuries that take time to heal.

    From repetitive strain injury to manual handling injuries

    RSI can occur over time if you use a computer regularly or indeed do anything else on a regular basis. Your employer should take measures to minimise the potential danger in this area.

    They should also give training on manual handling and lifting procedures so there is little chance of you sustaining an injury if you do this on a regular basis. For example you might work in an office and handle all incoming office supplies deliveries.
