Safety hazards exist in all work environments, and compliance with safety regulations is vital. While each industry in Arizona has its unique dangers, some work injury risks that are common to all are often overlooked. Dehydration is one of those risk elements that can cause various physical problems, particularly when workers are exposed to heat -- both indoors and outside.
Stress is an invisible danger that can interfere with an employee's ability to be productive, identify hazards and avoid injuries. While almost any job produces stress, long hours, infrequent or inadequate breaks and conflict can contribute to it. Furthermore, unrealistic deadlines or targets and job insecurity can exacerbate stress levels.
