Where can I find SCCOE’s plans regarding Injury/Illness Prevention and Workplace Violence?
The SCCOE’s plan is embedded within the
Employee Compliance Handbook on page 18.
There are several “hidden: hazards throughout the workplace that we should all be aware of.
Common workplace factors that cause stress;
Take a step back to evaluate whether work is causing you stress. Identify stressors that you can reasonably reduce. You also may want to seek the advice of a medical or mental health professional.
It is also important to remember, that as SCCOE employees, we do have access to our Employee Health and Wellness programs.
Slips, Trips and Falls
Slips, trips, and falls come in many forms, making them the second most common cause of injury in the workplace.
Hazards that cause workers to slip, trip, and fall include:
Naturally slippery surfaces, like polished stone.
It is easy to get lost in your daily tasks, but be mindful of these hazards, be aware of your surroundings, and routinely inspect walkways. If you discover any area that may be potentially hazardous, please contact your supervisor for assistance.
Please refer to the question “What happens if I get injured (either at work or outside of work) and do not feel I can work. What should I do?” and “If I get injured on the job, what do I do and who do I contact?”.
