About office accidents

Office workers who remain stationary all day long are at risk of developing back injuries, mainly due to unsuitable chairs and equipment. Slips and trips are another common type of accident in the office, but they are also one of the most easily preventable. There are also risks in the office kitchen, arising from situations such as spillages and faulty equipment.

Your employer’s obligations

Employers have a responsibility to ensure staff can carry out their job both effectively and comfortably.

The law requires that employers perform an analysis of each employee’s workstation, in order to assess health and safety risks to which they are exposed to at their workstation. This includes analysis of seating, display screen equipment and overall ergonomic impact of the tools that have been provided in order for workers to do their job. 

Once the assessment has been carried out, they have a duty to ensure all equipment used is safe, appropriate for both the employee and their role, and unlikely to cause injury. This encompasses chairs, desk positioning, display unit distance and adjustments and other workplace aids.
