Your employer is obliged to arrange the work properly. The work is not allowed to have any negative influence on your health and safety. Your employer must inform you of the risks on the workplace. Within the company, ask about the precautions that are in place.
Employers who employ more than 25 people are obliged to appoint an expert, called a prevention officer. Ask your manager who the prevention officer is in the company you are working for. If the company has a works council (OR), you can also ask them questions about your health and safety on the workplace.
