Occupational health problems occur at work or because of the kind of work you do. These problems can include:

  • Cuts, broken bones, sprains and strains, or amputations
  • Repetitive motion disorders
  • Hearing problems caused by exposure to noise
  • Vision problems or even blindness
  • Illness caused by breathing, touching or ingesting unsafe substances
  • Illness caused by exposure to radiation
  • Exposure to germs in healthcare settings

Good job safety and prevention practices can reduce your risk of these problems. Try to stay fit, reduce stress, set up your work area properly, and use the right equipment and gear.

Workers that are exposed to animals in the course of their work or research need to fill out this form and return it to the Biosafety Officer.
