When we are working in an office we do not generally think about dangers and risks to our health, safety and wellbeing. We need to be aware of the different types of dangers in our offices and similar work areas as there are many areas where danger lurks.
Every year thousands of office workers need to take some sort of time off work due to either ill-health or injuries sustained at work. This costs the UK economy millions of pounds every year. There is legislation for all sorts of subject matters that are in place to try and reduce the overall number of injuries, illness or worse, death caused at work, which we will cover in this course.
This course has been devised for people who work in office environments. You may be put in some dangerous or unhealthy situations and this course can give you guidance on what to do. We will look at and cover all aspects of office safety, including existing legislation that is applicable to the office environment. Topics such as manual handling, DSE, basic fire safety, basic first aid, electrical safety and more are covered in this course.
As this covers a lot of ground in terms of office safety, organisations can utilise this online training course at any convenient time for users, whether that be in work or away from their desk.
This course will cover:
• Aggression and violence
• Bullying in the workplace
• Display Screen Equipment
