Occupational Health and Safety is an instrumental aspect of organisations within the commercial and industrial sectors during the COVID-19 pandemic. Workplaces that include construction sites, offices, and storefronts are very susceptible to spreading the virus through human contact. Therefore, it becomes a focal point of any business when Occupational Health and Safety is brought up. industrial facilities are aware of the importance of Occupational Health and Safety to create a safe workspace and reduce the risk of occupational injuries or health complications. Adding COVID-19 restrictions into the picture, Occupational Health and Safety becomes absolutely pivotal for businesses in 2021.

The Importance of Office Space Safety Training

 

Office space cannot be compared to industrial facilities regarding Occupational Health and Safety rules and regulations. However, there are still risks involved when working in an office. WWISE offers courses that handle on safety-related issues within such an office space. Our Induction for Office and Reception Course is designed for new starters in an office environment. This course covers crucial elements such as employee responsibilities, workstations, Display Screen Equipment (DSE), office layouts, electricity safety, fire safety, and human interaction. We also have a safety course that handles specifically on DSE and Workstations, designed for people who are continually working on visual display units (VDUs).

 

This course handles on how to adjust your workstation to fit your need and preferences and ensure that you can stay healthy. There are several health-related problems that can occur when continually working at a workstation. This course offers feasible solutions to counter these problems. Standing desks are the latest trend in modern office spaces. These desks can be adjusted to suit a person that is standing in front if it as opposed to sitting by lifting the counter of the desk higher when they want to stand and work for a while. The aim of this short course is to increase the overall health and safety of employees working in an office space and spending most of their time at workstations with VDUs.
