Hello,

It's a little hard to see everything I would need to in order to confirm its identity but I think this is a golden huntsman spider. The eyes, tips of the legs, and the little pattern on the back lead me to believe this. It is not considered especially hazardous. All spiders have venom but not all venom is especially dangerous to people. It would most likely be like a bee or wasp sting.
Again, this can't be confirmed with just this image but based on what I can see here it's my best estimate.
Let me know if I can offer any other info!
