There Are Hazards in Offices Too
Bothwell, in Lanarakshire, is one of the most affluent areas in Scotland, and being just 9 miles outside Glasgow it is also ideal commuter territory. Many locals also commute to nearby Hamilton and Uddingstone. Industries here vary from heavy engineering to hi-tech computing, providing employment in factory workshops, stores and offices.
People often don’t associate offices as health and safety risk areas, and whilst it may be true that they aren’t as overtly dangerous as factories, with all of the manual handling and heavy machinery, they are none-the-less, still areas of risk if the proper precautions are not adopted. Take working with computers for example.
Injuries Associated in Working with Computers
Whereas as once upon a time, computers were mere office aids, the administration in most companies is now entirely dependent on them, and office workers spend virtually all day staring into computer monitors and pounding computer keyboards. The main risks that are associated with these activities are injuries to your eyesight; repetitive strain injury, especially to the wrists, (carpal tunnel syndrome); and spinal injury, if inappropriate office seating is used.
Making a Claim
The injury claim industry has already had a marked effect on health and safety. The increased number of personal injury claims has led to employers becoming more aware, and adopting better health and safety procedures and policies to avoid having to pay injury compensation. But whilst the situation has dramatically improved in the last 30 years, there are still many instances where office injuries still occur, and if you have been injured in the workplace through no fault of your own, then you are both legally and morally entitled to financial compensation. This is where AAH come into the picture.
Typical Office Environment Risks
There are many (sometimes seemingly innocuous) risks in offices. They include:
- Electric shock
- Manual handling injuries (Lifting heavy files etc)
- Respiratory problems
- Fire hazard
- Incorrectly arranged furniture
- Trailing leads
- Workstations incorrectly set up
These are but a few of the risks and injuries that can occur in the office environment.
