Injuries employees may sustain while inside the office

Individuals should be aware that workplace injuries can also happen inside the offices. Like any other workplace accidents, office employees suffer from loss of income when they sustain injuries while inside their work environment. Below are the usual causes of injuries that office employees may sustain.

  • Equipment malfunctions
  • Lifting heavy things inside the office
  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Faulty electrical outlets
  • Collisions
  • Repetitive motions
  • Falling objects
