Although office life can be fairly monotonous and boring, there are many hidden dangers present within work places that most employers nor their employees are fully aware of. Too many people believe that an accident, a fire or a gas leak is unlikely to happen to them and will usually ignore their safety manual and not pay much attention to their safety training. Employers on the other hand provide safety trainings only out of obligations and rare pay attention to them to find out if they are good and have had an impact on their staff. Sadly, employers too are of the same mentality that a serious and fatal accident is highly unlikely and would probably never happen to them or their office.
Knowing your prevention equipment
Most offices will be fitted with certain danger prevention equipment and mechanisms because it is the law to have them in your work place. The law also insists that every workers knowns how to use this equipment in a rush and therefore every company will have a hose reel cabinet in their office but none of the workers who work at the office will have any idea how to use them because the trainings they received were insufficient.
Smoke detector in Singapore are another thing that every work place will have and yet, similar to the above, no one takes them seriously. In the event that a smoke alarm goes off, most employees will slowly and slovenly walk to the entrance believing it is just another drill. In most cases it is just another drill however, it is important that the employee does not treat it as such because one day, it may not be a drill and everyone will stay indoors or walk slowly believing it is a drill.
First aid in offices
Although it is mandatory in some office, in others it is not mandatory that everyone in the office knows their first aid. As a result, someone in your office could die because another employee did not know the most basic principles of saving their life.
A neat and tidy work area
Fires and natural disasters are not the only form of accident that could take place in your office. While the chances of a fire breaking out in your office is rather low, an accident occurring due to a cluttered work place is far more likely. You will be surprised by how many cuts, pricks and even falls happen every day because of cluttered tables and therefore it is important for people to make sure that their work stations are one hundred percent clutter free.
