Work Environment

Most baristas work in clean, well-lighted environments with modern equipment. Work hazards still exist, however, such as falls on slippery floors, burns from steam and heat, and cuts from knives or glassware. The job requires long hours of standing and walking. Many cafes and restaurants are temperature controlled but if the air-conditioner breaks down, for example, baristas may have to work through a day or two of extreme heat until it is repaired.
