Occupational safety hazards are prevalent not only in places involving significant physical labor but in the office as well. Employees suffering from poor working conditions exhibit signs of decreased production, anxiety, and job dissatisfaction. This course introduces safe practices and procedures to protect employees from risks associated with office workplace injuries. It offers solutions to the most common workplace associated problems such as: general office safety, indoor air pollution, computer workstations and office environmental issues. This course provides the most important recommendations and how to apply them to common situations. With the proper application of these procedures, as well as consistent implementation practices, it is likely that employees will show more productivity as well as greater work satisfaction overall. This guide is intended to be consistent with all existing OSHA standards therefore, if an area of this course is considered by the reader to be inconsistent with OSHA, then the OSHA standard should be followed.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
