Office Safety

Cal OSHA's Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Title 8, Chapter 3.2 California Occupational Safety and Health) requires that individuals receive proper training and information regarding occupational risk.

General Office Safety describes the general health and safety concerns, such as fall hazards, poor indoor air quality, and various other risks that come from sedentary desk jobs.

Specifically, the General Duty Clause (Section 5) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 requires employers to provide employees with a work environment "free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm". Other similar Cal OSHA regulations regarding office safety include sanitation, first aid, noise exposure, electrical safety, emergency action plans, fire prevention plans, fire protection, exit routes, and hazard communication for chemical hazards.


Important: You must review the material and complete the quiz in the same session for the time you spend training to be recorded accurately. Most courses take about 30 minutes to complete.
