Despite common beliefs that the office provides a safe environment in which to work, many hazards exist which cause thousands of injuries and health problems each year among office workers. Since one-third of the workforce is in offices, even low rates of work-related injuries and illnesses can have an immense impact on employee safety and health.
Today’s modern offices are substantially different from the office environment of 20 years ago. Sweeping changes have occurred as a result of new office technology and the automation of office equipment. Consequently, office workers are faced with many more hazards.
