Most people find it hard to think of the office as a potentially harmful working environment - after all, the risks faced by a typical office worker are a far cry from the dangers confronted by those working in construction, agriculture or manufacturing. However, the office is home to many hazards that have the potential to cause harm: from aches and pains that result from using a poorly designed computer workstation to slips, trips and falls caused by poor housekeeping.
Both employer and employee have a legal responsibility for the health and safety of everyone affected by the business. This course identifies the main hazards that are present within the office environment and outlines practical steps that will minimise the risk of accident or injury.
