||Many jobs in the hotel industry present risks of strain on the back or other parts of the body. Poor work postures may arise due to ignorance or to poorly-designed workstations. Besides awkward postures, risk factors include manual handling, prolonged standing and repetitive movements. This booklet contains illustrations that show good and bad ergonomics or postures for bellmen, front desk staff, room attendants, waiters, kitchen staff and laundry workers.
