Office Safety

Although the typical office doesn’t contain the obvious life-threatening hazards of some work environments, the hazards that do exist in the office can nonetheless cause real damage. We are getting more and more enquiries for our 'Safety in the Office' DVD from businesses with as few as 3-5 employees.

Our Safety in the Office DVD is an excellent way to train and promote a safe office environment. No organisation can afford to ignore hazards in the office, just because they aren't so obvious. Click here to get it.

  • Manual Handling
  • Dealing With Office Fires
  • Ergonomics
  • Portable Fire Extinguishers

Safety Jokes!

Although safety is no joking matter, here are a few safety related jokes you can use to lighten up your safety training session!

Q: How do you drive a OHS Manager completely insane?
A: Tie him to a chair, stand in front of him, and fold up a road map the wrong way.

Q: What’s the difference between God and a Safety Manager?
A: God doesn’t think he’s a Safety Manager.

Manual Handling Joke:
During a manual handling training session, a strong young man at the construction site began bragging that he could out do anyone in a feat of strength. He made a special case of making fun of the site safety team. After several minutes, the Safety Manager had had enough.''Why don't you put your money where your mouth is'', he said. "I bet you a weeks wages that I can move something in a wheelbarrow over to that site hut that you won't be able to wheel back". "You're on, old man", the braggart replied. "Let's see what you got". The Safety Manager grabbed a wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said, "All right, Get in".

Fire Drill
A voice on the site PA loudspeaker announced: "This is a test of the speaker system to make sure it will work properly in case of emergency." My confidence in this safety precaution faded when the voice added: "If you are unable to hear this announcement, please contact us."

Funny manual handling video . . . or is it?

Although this is a 'funny' safety awareness video on the surface, it really shows how important correct Manual Handling techniques are. Had the man outside the building been standing 3 feet to the left, he quite possibly could have died. Manual Handling is more than simply correct lifting and carrying techniques. Safetycare has a stack of Manual Handling DVDs, courses and products available. Please check out the links below, and be sure your staff aren't like these donkeys in the video!

The packs above are all available in office specific versions too, to cater for Manual Handling training in office environments.
