When you look around an office, you’d probably think that it would be one of the safest places to work, but we receive many calls from people seeking office manager injury advice.
Although offices have some of the most stringent health and safety regulations in place, standards can fall through the cracks and you could find yourself suffering an injury. If a third party is responsible for the accident, you may be entitled to pursue a claim through an expert law firm like Accident Advice Helpline. If you think that you might have a right to claim, contact us for office manager injury advice.
Accidents that may need office manager injury advice
It’s no surprise that trips and falls are high on the list of office accidents. Such office accidents are caused by unsafe stairways and boxes lying around carelessly in corridors. When you think of how many cables you need in an average office in order to have power for all the different kinds of electrical devices we need nowadays, you’ll understand why loose wires can present a hazard. Other factors such as dim light or wet floors can also increase the likelihood of an office accident.
Even a workstation can present a cause of injury over time: your chair could give you back problems; or your monitor may strain your eyes. It is important to have an ergonomic workstation in order to prevent injuries from developing. If your employer has not provided a suitable chair and you are not taking the required number of breaks during the work day, they could be held liable for your injuries. If you have suffered an injury because your employer did not provide the proper equipment, you can contact Accident Advice Helpline for office manager injury advice and we will outline how your employer’s neglect could make you eligible to file a claim.
