You are 'entitled' to a safe workplace. However, restaurant stoves by definition have to be 'hot' but with air venting above. If you reasonably believe the workplace is not safe, you could contact Cal-OSHA and request an inspection and remedy.

IF you are in any way retaliated against for doing so or for complaining about safety, then feel free to contact me about your legal remedies for that.
