Thousands of people injure themselves at work every year. Around a third of these injuries are due to slips, trips and falls. About the same proportion again involve ‘manual handling’; the official terminology for physically lifting, moving or pushing something around.
Other workplace dangers are less obvious. Almost 80% of British working adults have said that they commonly experience work-related stress, for example. Even the seemingly simple act of sitting at your desk carries a degree of risk if your office workstation is incorrectly set up. For all these reasons, and more, it’s important to have a good understanding of the health and safety dangers that surround us at work and how to mitigate them.
