If you think that it's your boss' job to give you the equipment and training you need to be safe at work, you'd be right. However, you still have to make sure you get all the information you need to work safely.
The fact is, even though your employer has a responsibility to ensure a safe workplace, you too have a huge responsibility. After all, it's your life.
When the little voice in your head is saying, "Something's not right about this job situation," don't ignore that feeling. There could be more to it.
Sometimes the voice isn't enough to go on, though. So read what's here, and see how to ask for, and get, the support you need to be safe at work.
