    What to do if you’re injured in the office

    For a significant proportion of society, their destination each workday is an office. There are a diverse number of jobs to be had that are based in an office, which means plenty of people will be sitting in office chairs, using computers and telephones for much of the day.

    Although you would rightly think an office environment is usually pretty safe, this isn’t always the case. For example, there could potentially be issues relating to health and safety if the employer doesn’t do everything in their power to make the workplace a safe place to be. Fortunately, very few employers don’t do everything they can to make sure this is the case. This is why very few people will ever be injured in the office they work in.

    What might potentially happen?

    Slips, trips and falls can commonly occur all over the place – not just in offices. However, if adequate care isn’t taken to maintain good surroundings that are free from potential hazards, there could potentially be a greater chance of someone being injured in the office.

    Other hazards might also be present. For example, you could be working in an office where the floor is in poor condition, or where the chairs are insufficiently supportive for your needs. The electrical equipment, including the computers, should also be checked regularly to ensure it does not pose an electrical risk of any kind.
