How to Protect Your Loved Ones form Work-Induced Health Risks

Every work has its own risk but as to the degree, it can be varied from subtle to severe risks. I have been teaching for over a decade and my work-induced health problems include eye and throat strains and backaches.

But, comparing my work to other high-risks jobs like security, health, or rescue, I can say, I am luckier.

However, I am more alarmed that call center jobs bring forth more health – problems than any other office jobs. From the recent national news, it was reported that 8 out 10 call center agents experience more asthma attacks, hypertension, stress, smoking and drinking problems among others.

It is no wonder that in spite of the big compensation package, a good number of BPO workers leave their call center jobs for a more daytime work.

Work's safety measures, healthy lifestyle and regular exercise, however, can help you relieve of your stress and assure you of your health protection but if your health is quite severed by your present job, you may want to reconsider in keeping it.
