Hazards exist in every occupation and workplace in different forms that causes several injuries & illness. Different forms of hazards include sharp edges, falling objects, flying sparks, chemicals, noise etc. Though controlling hazard at its source is the best way for protection, one cannot deny possibilities of such riskier situations.
