Abstract The control of occupational hazards cannot be dissociated from quality control, toward which it contributes as well as towards the public image of the enterprise. The prevention of occupational accidents and diseases is all the more efficient, sustainable and profitable if it is integrated as far upstream as possible, namely during the design phase. Aimed at all parties involved in catering, the objective of this booklet is to help integrate occupational safety and health issues during the design or renovation of catering kitchens and to help choose solutions that also satisfy requirements with respect to the sanitary safety of food.
