Prevent Common Workplace Hazards with Office Safety Training
Posted on January 17, 2019 | in Safety
While on-the-job injuries often occur at worksites in industries such as construction and manufacturing, they also happen in office environments. For example, BLS data show that in 2017 alone, there were more than 63,000 injuries reported for office and administrative support occupations – and that’s just one example of an occupational group exposed to office hazards.
Many of these incidents — and the resulting noncompliance penalties — are preventable with the right safety training measures in place. VelocityEHS offers an Office Safety training course as part of our On-Demand Training course library, which can help you ensure your workers are aware of several common office hazards and key steps to take for safety.
