Hospitality employees most vulnerable to workplace health risks

HOTEL and restaurant employees are most at risk when it comes to health and safety in the workplace.

The most vulnerable groups are women and migrants who often experience unfair discrimination with additional psychosocial consequences.

The information was based on the results of a European Health and Safety in the Workplace study presented at a seminar in Limassol on Tuesday.

The hazards workers face come from carrying heavy loads, working in areas with dangerous substances and high levels of noise and smoke. The study showed that the main health problems these workers experienced were musculoskeletal, skin conditions and respiratory problems. The report also highlighted that workers in the more vulnerable groups (women and migrants) also faced a series of psychological dangers such as sexual and other forms of harassment, physical violence and threats, as well as discrimination from clients, colleagues and employers. Employees who worked in bars and other nightclubs were found to face the most dangers.
