The bracken fern is considered poisonous to livestock and has been linked to cancer in humans. But those issues are from consumption of the fern. Some workers take precautions around bracken fern with spores and wear masks.

Yours looks like a common indoor fern and should pose no danger. If you are worried, though, just replace them with another office plant.
