The modern workplace can be dangerous terrain, what with its hamster wheel desks and trampolines. But did you realise that injuries at a typical workplace can cause employees to take up to eight days off?

In fact, men end up taking a median of 10 days off on account of non-fatal injuries, compared to seven days by women employees, with a maximum of injuries taking place on Mondays.

A new infographic by Aubree Ritter and Quill suggests five ways to prompt your employees towards building a safer office environment:

  1. Stay clutter free
  2. Shut your drawers
  3. Provide adjustable stations
  4. Don’t block escape routes or prop open fire doors
  5. Keep power cords in good repair
