These workplaces can be characterized by multiple risk factors such as: biological risks related to sharp injuries, office work, working in awkward postures for long hours, fatigue, burn-out, chemicals etc.

Do not forget to implement the proposed preventive measures! The tool includes tips on reduction of stress and fatigue, ergonomics, fire safety, ionizing radiation and workplace health promotion. These tips prevent employees from identified risks, reduce the load for the back and joints, introduce the main principles of fire protection etc.
