Abstract

In their daily work chefs are exposed to different types of risks, such as accidents, general occupational injuries and mental stress. The professional kitchen is an environment where employees are exposed to constant noise from different materials and machines. This may in the longer term cause permanent hearing damage. Professional chefs also "cook with their ears”.

This concept focuses on creating a protective device for professional chefs that allows them to communicate effectively. It offers quality, hygiene, ease of use and good workflow in the kitchen with the goal of creating a stress-free environment.
