    Dangerous jobs: Chef

    It goes without saying when you work in a high-paced, pressure-fuelled position such as cheffing, accidents at work are bound to occur. In addition to the stress-related occupational accidents, when working as a professional chef, you are subject to many kitchen hazards which greatly improve your risk of workplace accidents and injuries.

    Common chef accidents

    Stop for a moment and consider the environment that a chef has to endure day in, day out. Sharp tools, complex equipment, and high temperatures, including open flames, surround them.

    With this in mind, it will come as no surprise that burns, scalds and lacerations are common occupational injuries for a chef.

    In fact, burns and small cuts are common occurrence. Many a chef will experience this type of work-related injury on a weekly basis; most are used to these issues and carry on working regardless. This isn’’t generally advisable, however, nor is it good practice. You should always seek sufficient medical treatment following any accident in the kitchen.

    Despite this, due to the nature of the chef’’s role and the environment surrounding them, the severity of workplace accidents can vary significantly.

    If you have suffered an accident in the kitchen at work, through no fault of your own, you may want to consider claiming compensation for the harm you have suffered.

    Claiming compensation for accidents at work

    Did your commis chef fail to clean up his spillage, causing you to slip? Perhaps your head chef didn’’t correctly store his knives and as such you sustained a laceration? Maybe your employer failed to provide you with an adequate induction, which has caused you to suffer injury using industry-specific equipment?
