Employee health and safety must be a priority at all times, in any office space. After all, no business can function properly if the wellbeing of staff is threatened.
There are a wide range of risk factors present in most commercial workplaces and it’s essential that you and your workers are properly informed.
That means understanding the problems and ensuring you’re able to respond to any threat that might crop up.
Read on for more information on the biggest risks in the office, and how we can help you deal with them.
The Biggest Risks
The biggest threats to health and safety in the office include:
- Back and neck injuries.
- Trip and fall hazards.
- Slip hazards.
All of these risk factors can be attributed to some kind of cause, such as poor-quality furniture, loose items and spills, as well as dangerous power sources.
Poor Ergonomics and Professional Office Design
Poor ergonomics contribute greatly to back and neck injuries at work, which are frighteningly common.
It’s crucial that you provide your staff with top-quality workstations, desks, chairs and other furniture, to prevent these issues as much as possible.
In the end, that means a much healthier and safer workplace for your employees.
Rubbish Removal and Office Decluttering
A cluttered office is an unsafe one. This is because it’s very easy for workers to trip on loose objects, as well as suffer with more dust and dirt in the workplace.
A buildup of office junk and commercial rubbish is common in many workplaces around Sydney. Furniture, e-waste, recyclables and appliances are all regular waste types in offices.
Thankfully, our sister company Sydney City Rubbish can remove all manner of office rubbish from your workplace.
Professional Commercial Cleaning
Spills and stains can present a significant risk when it comes to slip and fall injuries.
Even stains that sink into your carpet and are left untreated can become a hassle. Mould can build up and when mould spores become airborne, they can seriously affect the respiratory system of your employees.
Common areas are more inclined to spills, due to the fact that your staff will probably eat and drink in these spaces.
This is why regular professional commercial cleaning is a must in any office.
