Work requires light to moderate physical effort, but the employee may be required to perform heavy work, such as scouring and scrubbing large-size cooking utensils and pushing heavy carts and trucks in unloading, storing, and delivering supplies. The employee is subject to continuous standing and walking, and frequent stopping, reaching, pushing, pulling, and bending. The employee may be required to work on ladders and use powered cleaning equipment and frequently lift or move objects weighing up to 40 pounds. Subject to varying degrees of temperature and humidity in freezers, refrigerators and kitchen, usual hazards which exist in kitchen areas are constantly present such as wet and slippery floors, ovens, steam equipment, cuts from knives and chopping machines and exposure to potential abnormal and extreme temperatures ranging from a hot kitchen to walk-in refrigerators and freezers.
Working Conditions: The work is performed in kitchen areas where the steam and heat from cooking and dishwashing equipment often cause uncomfortably elevated temperatures and humidity. The work area is well lighted but usually noisy from food service activities, and there is danger of slipping on floors where food or beverages have been dropped. Food service workers are regularly exposed to hot liquids, sharp cutting blades, hot working surfaces, and extreme temperature changes when entering walk-in refrigeration or freezing units.
