Office Administration

It is sometimes said that workers who are employed in offices or in administration work in 'safe' workplaces.  However, these workers face a number of hazards - some of which have potentially very serious effects on their health and/or safety.

There has been plenty of research which shows that unionised and organised  workplaces have a better OHS record than un-unionised sites as these sites are far more likely to have well-trained and resourced elected OHS Reps, joint OHS Committees and support from the union.  This applies not only to traditional 'blue collar' workplaces, but in offices too.
