  3. Office workplace hazards which everyone ignores

You may think that working in an office is relatively low risk, and you wouldn’t be alone in this mind set. Office workers believe that they aren’t in immediate danger so take chances which leave them vulnerable to accidents.

Like any environment, an office has its hazards, and through simple compliance measures such hazards can easily be eliminated. Most risks in the workplace have become so normalised that they aren’t even considered a great danger anymore.

Here are some workplace health and safety hazards as recognised by HSE, which you and your office should be aware of.
