The first thing that comes to my mind are the ergonomic issues. Proper seating, posture, Monitor Height and Distance, Mouse pad with wrist rests. Cable Wiring for trip hazards. Emergency lighting for evacuation. Fire Extinguishers. Also frequent breaks for prolonged computer projects. Stand and stretch, including fingers every 30-45 minutes. Stretch your eyes by focusing on something far away, perhaps out a window.
