Office Health & Safety

There is a great deal of health and safety legislation in the U.K and much of it is not relevant to the typical office based business. However, it is often hard for the employer to decide what does apply to their business.

You are likely to be a low risk environment. However, don’t forget, despite common belief that the office provides a safe environment to work in, many hazards do exist that cause thousands of injuries and health problems among office workers in the UK every year.

If the worst happens and there is an accident resulting in injury to a member of your staff or a visitor, you want to be able to show that you have complied with your legal responsibilities but don’t want to spend money on unnecessary documentation and solutions that aren’t relevant to you.

Issues that affect the office environment include:

  • Fire safety
  • Manual handling
  • Computer / work station safety (DSE)
  • Hazardous substances (COSHH)
  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Aggression, bullying and violence
  • Stress
