Don't overlook these workplace injury risks

People often think of certain professions, such as office work, as being safe. The fact is that every job comes with some risks. Understanding those can help employers provide the tools and protocol they need to keep their employees safe. When employers don't do this, the workers might suffer injuries.

Some common occupational illnesses
