Have you been hurt whilst working at a restaurant?
As chefs work with hot pans and ovens all day, it’s not hard to imagine that they can suffer injuries from time to time. However, it seems that working as a chef could be more dangerous than was previously thought. Currently, studies are taking place to determine whether or not working in such a hot environment could be detrimental to a person’s health.
Depending on the results, changes may be made to ensure that temperatures are regulated or that chefs work shorter shifts so that they aren’t exposed to such extreme temperatures for so long.
Of course, there are many other types of employees in a restaurant who can also be at risk of injury. If you’re a waitress or a waiter, you’ll also be handling hot food and drinks and you could be at risk of a burn if someone spills something on you.
If you do work in a restaurant and you suffer an injury, it could constitute an industrial injury and your employer may be liable for the harm that you’ve suffered.
