Have you ever been injured on the job? It costs both you and your employer time and money. Thousands of workplace accidents occur each year at a cost of millions of dollars. Over 80 percent of those were avoidable. Accidents can occur from an old, worn out chair cushion. The odor that these give off can make someone feel sick. It’s easy to tell if a chair cushion has gone bad.
Examine the cushion firsthand. When cushions get old, they can release a fine dust. Sometimes they smell awful. How does it feel when you sit on it? Does it still support your weight? Old, lumpy cushions are not just a health hazard. They are also uncomfortable. Below are a few other tips for workplace safety.
