Many workers are taking risks in their jobs in their stride  like being exposed  to asbestos.

Exposure to risks on a job is in one sense of voluntary nature since one can always refuse to submit to the work or may have control over how the job is done.

But generally workers have no choice other than what they are told to do since the y

Want to stick to the only job available to them.

But they are not generally informed about the exposure to toxic substances and other dangers which are not readily seen, smelt, heard or otherwise sensed.

Occupational  health  and  safety  regulations  and  unions  can  have  a  better  say  in correcting these situations but still things are far below expected safety standards.

Engineers while designing work stations must take into account the casual attitude of workers on safety (esp. when they are paid on piece rate).
