At first glance the office environment may appear to be the safest environment in which to work. However office safety statistics have highlighted that many unnecessary and avoidable accidents occur in offices and call centres everyday, perhaps due to people’s lack of awareness of basic safety principles.
Our office safety e-learning module, provides an in depth guide to the hazards and risks posed by today’s office environment. Particular focus is given to slips and trips, fire, DSE and manual handling, which contribute the most to compromise safety in the office.
All too often the office is overlooked when it comes to health and safety, however every year there are a large amount of reported injuries sustained because safety was overlooked. This e-learning course will help employers to meet their health and safety obligations and provide a safer working environment for office staff.
