Office Work Injury Statistics

  • According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) , 80,410 private-industry office and administrative workers suffered on-the-job injuries in 2008.
  • Falls are the most common type of injury in an office. Slips, trips and falls sidelined 25,790 workers in 2008, according to BLS. The National Safety Council says employees are 2.5 times more likely to suffer a disabling fall in an office setting than anywhere else.
  • Another major type of office injury comes from workers being struck by or caught by an object. These types of incidents accounted for 15,680 injuries in 2008, according to BLS.

Perhaps the most prevalent injuries in an office setting are related to ergonomics. Because office workers spend the bulk of their day seated at a desk and working on a computer, they are prone to strains and other injuries related to posture and repetitive movement.

These are just a few of the most common types of office injuries that occur in the United States each year. There are many others.
