Physical Danger

You may encounter physical hazards if working out in the field in a dangerous place, such as near an oil well. If you are working in a lab, you could be working with neurotoxins, dangerous bacteria or viruses. Or you might drop a beaker and cut your foot on some glass. If you trip over your own tongue when saying the word "klutz," this may be your biggest worry.
