Office Safety

ETD’s Safety in the Office Course will show you how to keep workplace hazards and injuries at bay. 

When working in an office, we don't always think about dangers or risks to our health. However, surprisingly, offices often harbour risks and hazards that we need to minimise. In fact, thousands of people injure themselves in the office every year. This office safety training will introduce you to hazards that we need to prevent to avoid accidents in the workplace. 

ETD’s office health and safety training is suitable for anyone who works in an office environment. By completing this course, you will be able to effectively control hazards in the office, negotiate difficult situations and respond accordingly in an emergency.
