The modern workplace can be dangerous terrain, what with its hamster wheel desks and trampolines. But did you realise that injuries at a typical workplace can cause employees to take up to eight days off?
In fact, men end up taking a median of 10 days off on account of non-fatal injuries, compared to seven days by women employees, with a maximum of injuries taking place on Mondays.
A new infographic by Aubree Ritter and Quill suggests five ways to prompt your employees towards building a safer office environment:
- Stay clutter free
- Shut your drawers
- Provide adjustable stations
- Don’t block escape routes or prop open fire doors
- Keep power cords in good repair
