Types of accidents that could occur in a hotel

Whether the accommodation is luxury or budget, there are many types of accidents that could occur in a hotel.

As with any public building, hotel owners are obliged to maintain certain standards, so that their guests’ safety is never put at risk. If they fail to do so, then a serious accident could occur, resulting in painful and even life-threatening injuries.

Accidents in a hotel

The hotel reception area is usually busy, as guests make their way to and from their rooms. They might be carrying bags from a long day of shopping, or pulling heavy suitcases behind them. So it is vital that this area is kept clean, dry and free from any unexpected obstacles. If someone was to trip and fall, they could sustain a fracture, or even an acute head injury.

Inside the hotel room

Each room will probably have some basic amenities such as a television, hair dryer and telephone. These should be regularly checked for safety, as they could pose a risk of delivering an electric shock.

Child locks should be fully functioning, and any other safety features such as window barriers should be sound. If these should fail, they could lead to a fatal accident.
