Workplace safety is so important nowadays but everyone overlooks the silent killer lurking in every office in the western world. These chairs with the pedals on the sides are surprisingly dangerous. I was sitting in a chair, like a normal person, but with my feet kind of tucked up under me so my toes were hooked over the leg arms that the wheels go to. I moved slightly and my heel touched the pedal that makes the seat go down, and since I was sitting on the chair the seat went down, trapping my legs under the chair. I was stuck! I couldn't slide my chair back because of the wall, I couldn't rotate the chair because my legs were trapped. I started to panic. Luckily I was eventually able to tip the chair over and kind of fall out of it, but the noise made my coworkers come over and ask if I was OK and I just pretended I didn't hear anything. But what if I couldn't tip the chair over and I was working late and no one could help me?! I could have been stuck in my chair all weekend So this is my PSA to all of you to have an escape plan and to raise awareness of a hidden danger we all deal with on a daily basis. I used to get stuck in chairs a lot as a child too and my mum had to butter me up to get me out.
