Course details

Where occupational health and safety is concerned, hospitality workers are considered much more vulnerable than workers in most other industries.

Obviously any job where glass, knives and hot stoves are a regular feature is going to come with its fair share of injuries – especially when that job also happens to be fast-paced and often high-stress.

But hospitality workers are also susceptible to long-term health problems such as repetitive strain injuries, disrupted circadian rhythm and nutritional deficiencies. While it’s hard to completely avoid the occasional cut or burn in this industry, these long-term health issues are actually largely preventable.

Personal trainer and nutritionist Leandra Rouse works with businesses to create unique staff wellbeing programs. With years of experience in the hospitality industry, she is all too familiar with the stress that service work can create – and she’s determined to help hospitality workers prioritize their health and wellbeing.
