Have you tripped or fallen over at your place of work?
Although injuries and accidents can occur in any type of workplace, they may be becoming more common in office environments. Although offices aren’t generally considered to be particularly dangerous places to work, the increasing use of technology in this environment can make injuries more likely.
Whilst the technology itself may not be dangerous, it could cause a logistical risk of injury. For example, in many offices, there will be multiple computers, faxes, printers and even servers. With each piece of equipment requiring a separate electrical socket, there can be numerous wires on the floor or trailing down from desks or across office floors.
Unfortunately, these can be a hazard as it is very easy to trip over them. Whilst the act of falling might, in itself, cause an injury, this could be made worse if you then pull down a piece of heavy equipment which could strike you.
