Workplace Safety Resources
Restaurant & Food Service

While not often thought of as a high-hazard industry, the foodservice industry does include many hazards that expose restaurant employees to injury and create higher workers' compensation costs for owners. Common exposures include cuts, burns, slips and falls, as well as workplace violence incidents. Injury prevention is especially critical in the restaurant industry because it doesn't take much in claims costs to jeopardize restaurants' status for BWC rating programs such as group rating.
