Business and Administration Professionals

Office workers carry out a broad range of tasks that involve dealing with business, administration, sales and marketing issues. Most of us don’t think of office work as unsafe, but the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports tens of thousands of injuries or work-related health problems occur each year.

Slips, trips and falls account for the greatest number of office work-related injuries, according to the National Safety Council (NSC). Rounding out the top five are Ergonomics, Lifting, Fire Safety & Electrical Hazards, and Workplace Violence.

For nearly 30 years, Beacon has been proud to provide workers' compensation insurance to the majority of professionals in Rhode Island.  We understand the business environment whether your employees are working in the office, or working from home, and we're here to support you and your employees.

Developing a Safety Program

Every company regardless of size should have a written safety policies and employee training for employees on procedures to prevent common injuries like slips and falls, repetitive motion (ergonomics) and workplace violence. 

Awareness is the first step to eliminating or reducing the odds of an injury occurring. Management must find ways to encourage employees to equally participate in the safety process. When employees are full engaged in the safety process companies see the highest levels of success. Employee participation can include sitting on safety committees, conducting safety assessments, following established safety rules, reporting unsafe conditions and attending training sessions. 

Most things in an office environment change constantly, and it is important to periodically review you workstation risks to make sure that your seating, computer workstation, and keyboard and mouse are set up correctly to allow you to work comfortably and efficiently.  Download the Ergo Office Checklist with helpful tips and solutions.
