What WHS Professionals Can Learn From TV Sitcom The Office

Office Safety… boring? Not if you’re Michael Scott, fictional boss of NBC’s “The Office” (2005 – 2013).

The Office, known for its cringe-worthy, realistic deadpan humor, became one of TV’s best comedies and was nominated for 42 Primetime Emmy Awards, winning five. The series focuses on the day-to-day operation of Dunder Mifflin, a regional paper company in Scranton Pennsylvania. Michael Scott, played by Steve Carell, is the self-proclaimed “World’s Best Boss” and can do no wrong in his own mind. He loves himself, hates the HR rep Toby, and throws around one-liners like it’s his job. His antics are often hilarious to himself but painfully awkward to the rest of the company.

The Office was inspiration to create an infographic all about real office safety issues that companies everywhere need to be aware of. It’s presented from the perspective of Michael Scott and includes quotes and pictures from the show as well as plenty of educational information about the dangers of the workplace:
