||Hazard evaluations made by safety specialists do not always agree with hazard perceptions of workers. For this reason, a survey was conducted on workers' hazard perceptions in the hotel industry, a sector which is not considered to present high risks of severe or fatal accidents, but within which there exist a wide variety of tasks. Questionnaires were sent to the workers of 76 hotels all over Spain. Findings based on 611 responses are discussed.
