Office Safety Video Excerpt:
Accidents can happen anywhere, at anytime, even in the office. Your office may seem safe enough, but you can still get hurt there. Often the hazards you encounter are hidden in common everyday tasks. For instance, typing with too much force, or even sitting incorrectly can lead to chronics conditions such as carpel tunnel syndrome and lower back pain. These problems can last a lifetime, and they often start right here at the office. In fact millions of people seek medical treatment each year for office related injuries. Today we’ll take a close look at the office and the hazards so many of us seem to be unaware of. Knowing where the trouble spots are is the first step in avoiding injury. Office safety actually begins before you get to your desk. You need to be careful in public areas outside of your building like parking lots, and sidewalks. These places are especially hazards when they are dimly lit. Darkness can conceal danger, from obstacles you can trip over, to violent criminals. Bad weather can also be a problem. Rain, snow, hail, and sleet can make walking surfaces dangerous. As you move indoors you need to carry the ‘think safety’ attitude with you.
