IAAS 9: Dangerous Accounting Activities


WARNING TO ALL ACCOUNTANCY STAFF:

Your jobs are laced with dangerous accounting activities!:

  • those orderly rows of arch-lever files
  • that harmless pile of purchase invoices
  • your sedentary colleagues
.....all with the potential to inflict calamity and misery when you least expect it!!

BE VIGILANT! WATCH THESE VIDEOS! DO NOT LET IT HAPPEN TO YOU!

DANGEROUS ACCOUNTING ACTIVITY 1 - Licking Remittance Envelopes

This may seem like a sedentary activity, but a sudden lapse in concentration can inflict injury on you and your colleagues.




DANGEROUS ACTIVITY 2 - Working At Your Desk

Don't be lulled into a false sense of security by desk dividers. One minute you could be being silently seduced by a spreadsheet and the next.....




DANGEROUS ACTIVITY 3 - Looking at a Colleague

It can be tempting to break with accounting tradition and look up from your desk when a rare visitor passes through the Finance department. Don't do it!!




DANGEROUS ACTIVITY 4 - Filing Purchase Invoices

Purchase invoices can have a life of their own. Do not let down your guard until they are safely archived away in strong boxes.




VERY DANGEROUS ACTIVITY 5 - Be very suspicious when called to a meeting with a particularly difficult colleague from Research & Development to discuss the new product development budget




EXTREMELY DANGEROUS ACTIVITY 6 - Before walking through the warehouse to meet with the Warehouse Manager to discuss stock levels, revisit your First Aider Training Course notes, just in case they're needed......

(note: NOT for the faint-hearted!)
