Injuries Unique to the Office
At nearly every place of employment, there are some common forms of hazards
that can appear if negligence and a general lack of care for employees
is allowed to build, such as fires or falling objects. Just as a construction
crewmember is exposed to dangers unique to their field, like a defective
crane or crumbling scaffolding, the office employee may be harmed by preventable
hazards that might not be found in too many other occupation, or are caused
by less-than-ordinary problems.
Injuries that afflict officer workers may include:
Slip and fall: There seems to be a mindset in many offices that cleaning up spills or
taking care of stray trip hazards is solely the responsibility of janitors.
This welcomes debilitating slip and fall accidents and virtually every
turn as managers overlook their duty to maintain a safe work environment.
Back injury: The average office worker spends 8+ hours a day sitting in a cheap computer
desk chair. Without encouraged stretching and mandatory breaks, back muscles
can become painfully cramped to the point of debilitation, or spinal malformations
Arthritis: Just as our backs need rest from sitting, our hands need rest from typing.
Concerns of arthritis in office workers and typists have been prevalent
since the 1990’s but little has been done by companies to correct
this serious issue.
Eye strain: Computer monitor technology has advanced greatly in recent years but the
bright glare of a screen still has a negative impact on our eyes. If your
shift consists of looking at a computer all day, you may be hurting the
quality your vision.
