occupational health & safetyIs there a safe and healthy environment where your work?

Basic health concerns at work might include simple overwork and exertion (not to mention the spread of cold and flu germs) when demanding employers don't provide enough vacation or sick days.

Standard health and safety at the office -- like providing desks and chairs at the proper heights in well-lit spaces -- also helps to prevent chronic physical conditions such as eye strain, ongoing lower back pain or carpel tunnel syndrome.

Depending on the industry, workplace hazards can also include asbestos related diseases like mesothelioma and other environmental dangers, as well as conditions that may cause serious injuries to those in the construction or landscaping trades.
