What if you had ignored this hazard in your office? What if there was an emergency? What if you were controlling risks instead of dealing with the consequences?
It may surprise you to learn that last year in Australia and New Zealand over 11.1 million working days were lost due to accidents arising from office-based work. Risk management is about vital practical steps to protect you and your co-workers from real harm and suffering. It’s also good business sense.
Recent estimates suggest that every one dollar invested in controlling risk can save as much as 12 dollars in costs associated with ill-health and injury. Fire, poor housekeeping, slips, trips and falls, manual handling and ergonomics are just some of the risks that you need to identify, assess and control in your office.
