The work-space is our "second home", a place where we spend hours and days and which gives us a lot of satisfaction and meaning in life.
but at the same time, there are considerable risks within our work space and work routine that sometimes materialize and can cause irreversible (not only physical but mental) damages.
You don't have to be a construction worker working in a construction site to get injured during work, and even those who work in an office or sit at a computer most of the day may find themselves suffering from work-related injuries.
for example as a result of work stress, as a result of noisy work environment, as a result of improper or dangerous work practices, as a result of dangerous equipment, as a result of protective equipment that was not provided, or was improper, or "just" as a result of a work-related hazard (smooth stairs, unstable shelf, smooth or wet floors, etc.).
Fortunately, the legislature and the courts tend to protect the "weak" worker and impose on the "strong" employer a long list of duties (including by law) designed to protect the well-being of the workers, their health and physical and mental health, and also has the National Insurance Institute at his disposal, that allows for various remedies for the injured worker.
