Although the advancement of technology can provide a better and safer working environment to people, sometimes, overconfidence in technology can lead to unavoidable accidents and human errors in the workplace. This study aims to determine the effects of familiarity with office equipment on human errors and accidents in the workplace. A total of 150 surveys were collected and analysed with correlations analysis usingSPSS software version 19.0. The results show that although familiarity can reduce the occurrence of human errors, it cannot reduce the occurrence of accidents in the workplace. While it is now understood that improving one's familiarity with office equipment can potentially reduce their mistakes at work, companies should still be observant of other factors that can potentially reduce accidents in the workplace. This study sheds light on potential possibilities to improve the occupational safety, health and environment of organizations.
