At first glance, you may not think there’s much risk associated with office jobs. There’s no heavy machinery in offices like there is in industrial environments. There are the same risks that are present in forestry or construction work either.
While this is true, office workers throughout Florida face many hazards in the workplace and every year workers in these perceived “safe” environments suffer a serious work injuries or even die while on the job.
Some of the most common injuries seen in an office environment include lacerations, vision problems, fractures, musculoskeletal injuries, and repetitive strain injuries. The risk factors that create the environment for these injuries include:
In situations that are rare, issues may be caused by improper workplace security. This often puts workers at risk of violence in the workplace. This is a hazard that may come internally, from other workers, or externally, from customers and clients.
The good news is, there are several steps that business owners and managers can take to help prevent these situations. These include:
All employers and employees should take an active role in creating a safe and secure work environment. By employers listening to concerns and employees receiving proper training, everyone on-site can work as a team to prevent office work injuries and other safety issues.
If you have suffered an injury while in your office due to a work-related duty or task, you are likely eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits.
