Usind the world "at" helps tell someone where you currently are. The difference between "at" and "in"is that the physical location is general. I'm at the airport. However, in some cases you can use "at" and "in"interchangeably. I'm in the mall. I'm at the mall.

'I am in the workplace(el lugar de trabajo) ' would work.

Honestly, everybody will understand you just fine if you use "in" or "at" in the wrong place. But, here are some examples I found.

at: In or near the area occupied by; in or near the location of

in: Within the limits, bounds, or area of

People are usually using 'in' to note a general location and 'at' for a more specific location.

I'm in the building, at the front desk

I'm in New York, at the conference

I'm in New York, at the Empire State Building

Normalmente "in work" = empleado, y no se dice "in the work".
