A recent survey conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Survey of Occupational Illnesses and Injuries in 2014 revealed that approximately 3 million non-fatal injuries and illnesses affected private industry workers and 722,000 impacted state and local government workers. Subsequently, accidents and illness can occur anywhere and if this happens in the workplace this can ultimately effect productivity and the "bottom line" for organizations.
Here are a few ways to improve office safety. These include:
The effect of workplace safety can have a long term impact on an organization. Organizations can benefit from optimizing workplace safety by providing employees with on-site cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This training emphasizes adult, child, and infant CPR, how to properly use an automatic external defibrillator, and how to assist conscious and unconscious choking victims as well as other emergency situations.
