||Restaurant services constitute a high-risk area for occupational injuries. They rank first in the number of occupational injuries compensated in Quebec, and their manual workers are more frequently injured than those of other sectors of activity. The aim of this study was to evaluate these occupational injuries and their severity, based on the characteristics of the individuals, their jobs, and the types of injuries that occurred in the food services industry between 2001 and 2004. It is based on compensation data. The report includes accident scenarios, together with a generic description of workers in this sector and a description of typical accident profiles.
