Resumen Part 1: report of an investigation comprising a questionnaire survey, an ergonomic study, and monitoring of physical and chemical factors in the work environment, to ascertain mental and physical workloads and strain.

Symptoms of neck, shoulder and back strain (waitresses, hotel maids); dermatoses (cooks); mental strain. Improved ventilation and improved work postures in lifting, carrying and bedmaking were recommended. Part 2: report of an on-the-job investigation of psycho-social factors, job satisfaction and health status of these workers, including hygiene and ergonomic aspects (hearing damage hazards in discotheques and dance restaurants; ventilation, thermal and lighting conditions often below recommended levels; slippery floors, bad lighting and heat stress in kitchens; microwave oven radiation; high oil mist concentrations in some kitchens; high CO levels from clients' cigarette smoking in bars).
