Discover the key principles to reduce the stress and risks of your work:
You will encounter things that take time to learn when you start a new job. It is advisable for a new employee to take it easy in the beginning and learn the policies of the workplace carefully.
You have to know what kind of risks to take
Work may involve hazards that can, however, be prevented. The employer is responsible for occupational safety and employee orientation. The employee, in turn, must follow the orders and instructions given by the employer. A prerequisite for successful work orientation is that you listen and focus when you are being orientated to work.
Remember to ask for advice and obtain work-related information at the workplace!

slipping, tripping, sharp objects, etc.
