The aim of this research was to characterize the occupational hazards in the processes of therestaurant and kitchen areas of the Hostería Selva Virgen, property of the UniversidadTecnológica Equinoccial (UTE-Ecuador). To reach the objective, the processes and proceduresin the study areas were described. Then a survey was designed and implemented with the staffinvolved, directly or indirectly, with the tasks associated with the areas under investigation. Next,a risk matrix was developed to estimate the potential risks of working in these areas. With thisestimation, it became necessary to evaluate those risks considered relevant, measuring noise,light, heat stress, particulate matter and CO2 and CO gases.
