Health and safety in the office
Although working in an office job may not seem like the most dangerous career you can choose, there are plenty of hazards in office jobs just as there would be in any other career. In fact, people working in office jobs may be more predisposed to injury because they are less aware of the dangers around them, and thus have their guard down most of the time. There are a few things of which you should be aware when working in any job, especially an office job, and being aware of these will protect your health and stop you from getting injured during your work day.
- Know the health and safety. Even an office job will have health and safety rules that you should be following. Ask your employer to give you a copy that you can take home and study so that you always know what rules and regulations you should be following to stay safe.
- Watch out for electrics. All offices are full of wires and electronics. For this reason, it is important to be careful all of the time when having water around or moving anything around desks. Remember that a frayed wire can give you a lethal shock, so be aware of all of the electrics around you.
- Watch out in stairwells. Office buildings tend to have a lot of stairways, which can cause hazards. Always make sure that you avoid stairways if you are carrying heavy items, and that you look where you are going when walking up or down stairs.
