There are many things that can go wrong at work. But as far as your health and safety goes, your employer has to protect you and tell you about health and safety issues that may affect you. Workplace risk factors include but are not limited to chemicals, biological agents, physical factors, adverse ergonomic conditions, allergens, and psychosocial factors.

From making sure there are enough first-aid resources to minimizing potential risks at all costs, these are the least employees can do. And if not, the chances are they will get busted on the r/OSHA subreddit, which is entirely dedicated to reminding people to stay safe at work. Borrowing its name from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the community's description says “Safety First!” and its 745k members mean it.

So let’s see what kind of workplace disasters waiting to happen they came up with right below and make sure to check out our previous posts on r/OSHA here and here.

Previously, Bored Panda reached out to the moderator -eDgAR- who was happy to share some insights on the r/OSHA community. The mod said that the online community is meant to be lighthearted, where everyone can come for a laugh at how ridiculous some people can be.

"It's not meant to be a place for serious discussions about safety, although oftentimes comments can actually get into great analysis about the issues shown in posts, which is great," they commented. However, unlike other subreddits, "we don't get a crazy amount of posts and have seen days with only a handful of posts. If you're one of the lucky first, chances are you'll get to the top," -eDgAR- explained.
