How to make sure that rooms are safe in hotels and when to make an accident at work claim of your own
If you work in a hotel, it is your job to ensure that all guests enjoy the best possible experience, so that they are happy to return in the future, and also happy to recommend your hotel to their friends and family.
Not only this, but working in a hotel means that it is down to you to make sure that guests have the best possible experience of their holiday, with the place that they stayed forming a huge part of their overall opinion. One of the things which can completely ruin a holiday is being injured or made ill in some way, and you should be able to work on behalf of your guests to prevent this.
- Make sure windows are locked on upper floors. There is a reason that many major hotels will have windows that don’t open on their upper floors, or even just throughout the hotel. Windows which open pose the risk that guests could jump from them, or fall out of them by accident. Having windows that can’t be opened prevents this from happening.
- Avoid leaving sharp objects in rooms. Guests may be able to ask for things like scissors and knives if they need them, but these things shouldn’t be left in the room right away as guests may be staying with children or vulnerable adults who could injure themselves on sharp items.
- Have fire safety instructions somewhere obvious. The first safety instructions should be one of the first thing that a guest sees when they enter the room, so putting it by the main light switch or on the back of the door can be helpful. Guests should be able to read these right away so that they know what to do if the fire alarm does go off.
- Have non-slip mats. In each bathroom there should be a series of non slip mats to cover up as much of the floor space as possible. Hotel bathrooms usually don’t have windows, meaning that condensation can cause slipperiness across the floors.
