Safety is a basic human need, under which health and well-being exist. The ability for a hotel to provide a safe environment for its guests hinges on the ability for a hotel to provide a safe work environment for its employees.
From clean, pressed sheets and fluffy white towels to impeccably dressed staff serving every guest with a beaming smile, many things contribute to the making of a great hotel. But aside from the sparkling interior, there are other factors that go into a successful property that hoteliers need to consider - Employees Safety.
On the World Day for Safety and Health at Work (celebrated annually on April 28) we want to share with you how the hospitality industry can promote the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases globally with modern technologies.
Everyday hotel staff arrive at their jobs trusting that their employers are doing everything they can to keep them safe. For employees this means having the proper personal protective equipment, such as panic buttons or other alternative tools to get their jobs done safely. Knowing somebody has your back when it comes to your personal health and safety gives all of us peace of mind at the end of the day. Right?
So can hoteliers leverage hospitality technology to help keep employees in the hotel industry safe, relieve their stress and improve work performance?
At a high-level, hotel operations technology can not only simplify routine daily tasks, but also help to streamline communication and collaboration between departments and employees in particular. By bringing all hotel departments together with a single operations platform, HKeeper enables hotel staff to keep in touch with everything: the room, the staff, the guest.
Managers and Supervisors are able to see the progress of employees (Room attendants) and know their location as each action they take within a mobile app is tracked in real-time mode and provides additional security with HKeeper. Also, every employee working on floors documents everything by taking photos thereby providing any evidence in any situation (if needed).
In the end, hotel success is about more than just appearance and service. Combine these with high safety standards and the hotel will excel.
