Office work can be relatively tame when compared to other types of work, but a closer look reveals everyday hazards that can cause serious harm to workers. Key sources for hazards in offices include the following:
- Distracted walking (texting while using stairs or walkways).
- Hazardous chemicals such as some copier toners, pressurized and flammable “canned air” products, and liquids or powders used for cleaning and maintenance.
- Repetitive motion and awkward or static postures.
- Slippery or uneven walking surfaces
Information in this presentation can help employers and employees identify and evaluate existing or potential hazards. It also provides resources to help with training, preventive methods, and required written safety and health programs.
Registrations are closed for this event.
NOTE: We do not have the manpower to make changes to your schedule or to track “wait lists” this year.
If a class is full, please go to the class and check in with the monitor at class time. The monitor will add folks on a first-come, first-served basis as space permits. Please, do not be late for your class (your spot will be filled) and please DON’T be a “No Show.” If your class is at AGC, ITD, Tates Rents, or Suez (previously United Water), please go to those locations to see if you can attend.
Also, please make sure you print your classes after you register. A confirmation email will be sent to the email address you provide during account registration. In order to check your class schedule, log in using your username and password and navigate to My Classes. If you cannot remember your classes, please come to the registration desk for your packet at the BSU Student Union Building the first day of the conference.
