Hazards in the Workplace

Danger can lurk anywhere. Sometimes, the paths we take to the office or to the dining room have to be detoured to avoid all the animals grazing on the green grass found here at Mammoth.

Maybe your job requires ear plugs to protect your hearing or safety glasses to protect your vision. Others have stressful jobs that harm their mental and physical health. Around here, the hazards in the workplace are a little different. I can't say that my job is stressful and I don't think there's much chance of me losing my hearing or sight, but there are other hazards we have to deal with from time to time.
