This Office Safety course provides learners with an introduction to the common safety hazards that can be found in an office environment. The course explains how to identify health and safety risks and details what office workers can do to prevent their work tasks and behaviours from causing harm.

All low-risk workplaces, including offices, contain health and safety hazards that need to be carefully controlled. As an employee, it's important to have an awareness of the risks so that dangers can be identified and action can be taken to prevent injury or ill-health.
