    Have you spotted any office work safety hazards?


    Working in an office isn’t the most dangerous job around – in fact, there are far more dangerous industries to work in, such as construction or agriculture. But that’s not to say that the average office is without its hazards. When you go to work every day, office work safety hazards are probably not foremost on your mind. But being aware of the hazards surrounding you could reduce your risk of being injured in an accident at the office. If you’ve been injured and you think that your employer could have done more to prevent your accident from happening, then why not get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you can make a claim for personal injury compensation?

    Common office work safety hazards

    Here are a few of the most common office work safety hazards – if you’re not careful, they could leave you injured:

    • Faulty electrical equipment like a photocopier or printer that could cause an electric shock
    • Wet floors with no warning signs, leading to a slip and fall
    • Damaged flooring, loose carpet or trailing cables that could pose a tripping hazard
    • An untidy office which could cause a trip and fall
    • Overloaded shelves – objects could fall from height and hit you
    • Uncomfortable chairs and work stations which could cause back problems or repetitive strain disorder

    There are other hazards which could cause an accident too, and if you have been injured in a workplace accident, you could find you’re eligible to claim compensation. You may have sprained your ankle after slipping on a floor which was recently cleaned, or suffered repetitive strain disorder after your boss wouldn’t allow you to take your rest breaks from typing. Whatever your injuries, you have three years in which to make a claim.
