Office Safety: Ergonomic Hazards (Microlearning)


Office work is generally considered a pretty safe occupation, out of the elements and with relatively few hazards. However, there are certainly hazards in offices that people may not think about on a regular basis. Poor air quality, ineffective lighting and noise, slips, trips and falls, fire hazards, electrical equipment, poor workstation arrangement and improper lifting and storage are all potential safety hazards that can even be found in an office environment. Learners who successfully complete this course should be able to identify common ergonomic hazards in offices. This microlearning course addresses a specific aspect of a broader training topic.
