The office environment today is surrounded by so many hazards that pose serious health problems to the human elements of the organization and the organization in totality. This study was designed to identify the precautionary skills required by office managers to counter the hazards in the work setting. The middle executive and administrative officers and secretaries in Ebonyi State were the respondents. A structured questionnaire was used to elicit responses from the respondents. The study used a total population size of one hundred (100) respondents as sample. Out of the 100 copies of questionnaire distributed, 96 were returned and utilized for analyses. Data collected were analyzed using mean statistics. Results showed that office managers adherence to organizational rules and policies would enable them counter job hazards. The study recommended that possession of required precautionary skills and competency in manipulating modern equipment and machines will enable the managers counter job hazards in the automated offices. Safety rules made available by pasting in staff offices could be an added advantage while in-house training on the enormity and usefulness of the skills as well as strategies for overcoming precedent/or unprecedented difficulties in applying the skills should be enforced.
