Slips, trips and falls are the most common type of accident in office environments. These are often caused by loose wires, wet floors and objects that have been left lying around. Slips and trips can lead to heavy falls and that can cause broken bones, strains and other damage that can have long term consequences.
Injuries can also result from bad ergonomics in the workplace. Many people work in workstations that are badly set up and this can lead to repetitive strain injuries and other conditions that can cause pain and discomfort and even lead to career threatening conditions.
Most offices have a lot of electrical equipment. If it isn’t regularly tested, it can become unsafe putting users at risk of shocks.
