There are a variety of risks involved with working within the Hospitality industry. The most common injuries are

Slip and fall accidents

Cuts from broken glass and shards of metal

Accidents involving machinery and equipment

Falling objects and more

There are a few reasons why these injuries occur within the hospitality and restaurant industry

  • Employees are often on their feet for long periods of time, which can lead to fatigue, musculoskeletal disorders, foot pain, and other injuries. 
  • Additionally, many hospitality industry jobs involve moving around a lot, which can increase the risk of trips and falls.
  • Many hospitality industry workplaces (such as restaurants) can be hazardous due to uneven floors, slippery floors and other potential hazards. 

There are a few things that employers can do to help reduce the risk of foot injuries in the hospitality industry

Firstly, they can make sure that employees have adequate rest breaks and are not on their feet for excessively long periods of time.

Additionally, they can provide employees with appropriate footwear that is comfortable and supports the feet.

Finally, employers can create a safe working environment by reducing potential hazards and ensuring that floors are clean and dry.

Workplace Injuries Impact Profitability

Injuries in the workplace are not only extremely painful for the individual, but they can also be quite costly for the company. Additional direct and indirect costs may include: 

  • The cost of workplace injuries can range from the cost of medical treatment to 
  • The loss of productivity while an employee is recovering, to 
  • Potential liability costs if the injury is severe enough. 


Mitigation of risk and accident prevention for chefs, bartenders, waiters/waitresses, servers, housekeepers and other hospitality workers are the leading methods for avoiding these costs, improving safety, comfort and profitability.
