||Restaurant workers have among the highest rates of work-related illness and injury in the United States, but little is known about the working conditions and occupational health status of Chinese immigrant restaurant workers. Community-based participatory research was employed to study restaurant working conditions and worker health in San Francisco's Chinatown. A community/academic/health department collaborative was formed and 23 restaurant workers trained on research techniques and worker health and safety. A worker survey instrument and a restaurant observational checklist were collaboratively developed. The checklist was piloted in 71 Chinatown restaurants, and the questionnaire administered to 433 restaurant workers. Findings are discussed.
