The typical risks of an office environment
The people that work here in Langholm, in EDM’s headquarters, are mostly office workers, but they too, like any other workers, anywhere in the UK, can easily sustain injuries in an office working environment.
Whilst offices are not exactly dangerous environments, they can still pose various risks, according to how well they are laid out and managed. Risks include:
- Repetitive strain injury and Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Musculoskeletal injuries due to lack of ergonomic seating
- Manual handling injuries maybe caused by moving furniture and equipment around
- Slips, trips and falls
- Headaches from constantly sitting in front of a glaring screen, screen protectors should be provided
- Respiratory illnesses
Every employer has a duty of care to their employees. It is down to them to carry out risk assessments for all operations that staff are expected to perform, including surveying workstations. If an employer carrying out these duties and as a result, a member of staff is injured, that member of staff is entitled to raise an injury claim for financial compensation.
