What are some of the common hazards and health risks that office workers need to know about to stay safe in the workplace?

We represent individuals from all walks of life and professions. Getting hurt on-the-job is not an exclusive club reserved for heavy labor.

Just because a person works in an office setting does not mean they are immune to accidents. Workers’ compensation should cover all medical bills and lost wages.

Here are some of the ways our clients get hurt while performing desk jobs.

Slips & falls

We frequently see people hurt from slips and falls at work. This includes trips to the bathroom, lunch breaks, and designated parking areas.

Lifting items

Did you know that some office supplies can weigh more than fifty pounds? Make sure to use safe lifting techniques and seek assistance when necessary.

Falling objects

Watch out for falling objects such as file cabinets, shelving, and boxes of papers. It only takes a split second for someone to get seriously hurt.

Repetitive motion

Activities such as typing, writing, and drawing can result in repetitive motion injury. Keeping a fixed position for long periods of time is also bad for health.

Sedentary lifestyle

Studies have shown that sitting at a desk can be detrimental to health. It increases the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and other chronic problems.

Michigan Workers Comp Lawyers never charges a fee to evaluate a potential case. Our law firm has represented injured and disabled workers exclusively for more than 35 years. Call (844) 201-9497 for a free consultation today.
