Not all workplace injuries occur in construction and manufacturing jobs. It’s possible to do harm to yourself or others simply by sitting at a desk all day.

Creating a safe office environment is essential for any business. It’s the mandatory duty of any office manager to ensure the safety of workers.

First aid training and decluttering the space will help ensure everybody stays safe while they work.

Here’s 5 tips for ensuring office safety…

Tip 1. What to Do In A Breathing Emergency

Choking, asthma and allergic reactions are all classed as breathing emergencies. If you discover someone choking you must call 999 immediately. Most people think you should use the Heimlich maneuver if somebody is choking but this is incorrect. Only use it in extreme circumstances and if the person clearly cant breath.

The most common breathing problem at work is an asthma attack. If this happens locate their inhaler and help them take it.

If an allergic reaction arises find the EpiPen and administer the shot. If these devices cannot be found call 999 straight away.

Tip 2. What To Do In A Diabetic Emergency

Controlling the amount of sugar in the blood is very difficult for a diabetic. It's important to recognise the two types of diabetes: hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia.

When a person has low blood sugar, they have hypoglycemia which can lead to the body entering a shock state. Hyperglycemia is caused by low insulin which can put people into a coma. If any of these happens call 999 and if the person appears not to be breathing you must attempt CPR. First Aid training should happen in workplace. Here’s a guide for employers.

Tip 3. Prevent Falls.

Falls can be the most common office injury. Your workplace aisles should be clear and spilled drinks are mopped straight away. Any mopped areas should be clearly signposted to prevent slis.

Tip 4. Use Correct Ergonomics

Obviously most office jobs require sitting at desks for a long period of time. This can lead to a lot of problems later in life. Slouching could cause muscle problems that could take years to sort out.

Don't overextend your arms as you type.

Allow workers to have a stretch at regular intervals.

Keep your chair in an upright position to prevent the spine from bending into a hunch shape.

Tip 5. Treat Burns Fast

Acting quickly will reduce a burn’s impact. Coffee spills and electric fires are the main causes of burns in the office. Usually a cold water tap should do the job but any worse and you’ll have to take a trip to A&E.

It’s always important to act fast when injuries occur. If you're not sure what to do always call 999. Better to be safe than sorry. Prevention is key for office safety. Following these simple steps could reduce injury and protect yourself and your employees.
