Germs—bacteria and viruses—are an inescapable fact of life. They follow you from home to work,…
You suffer from stumbles and falls, scrapes and bruises at home—so it’s only natural that you’d also suffer from them at work, too. The same hazards that can be dangerous (or even just embarrassing) at home exist in the office, too. So taking a few steps ahead of time can be a great way to help prevent hurt time at work.
Take lighting: Those dim hallways are easier spaces for people to experience falls. So too are any floors in need of repair or loose cords and wires.
You should also help employees learn mindful, safer ways to complete work-related tasks, such as lifting. We’ve all heard it time and again—but squat, don’t bend, and lift with your legs, not your back. Even sitting incorrectly at work can lead to injuries with hands, wrists, and arms.
Getting injured, no matter where it happens, is no fun. Use the tips in this graphic to help remedy any workplace hazards.
