courtroomWork can be a dangerous place. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 4 million nonfatal workplace injuries occurred in 2007. Worse, more than 5,000 fatalities occurred in the workplace. Hazards exist in every job type, ranging from ergonomic factors to harmful radiation to toxic chemicals. Employers must understand and recognize these hazards in order to identify and implement appropriate protective measures.

These are few examples of places where workers injuries are common due to their hazardous working environment:

1. Farm workers are at risk of pesticide exposure may cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness, rashes and burns. Long-term effects of pesticide exposure can include cancer, sterility, birth defects, and damage to the nervous system

2. Hazardous materials removal workers back pain, stress, exposed to contaminated garbage and fumes

3. Hospitals- back pain from lifting heavy patients or equipment, exposure to contaminated needles and body fluids, exposures to patients with aids or patients with TB

4. Road side workers-vehicular accidents slip and fall, exposure to exhaust fumes which could cause lung disease & other health problems

5. Secretary, receptionist and others who constantly use computers may end up with carpal tunnel syndrome
