A safe housekeeping environment impacts the guests and resort staff, as well as the housekeeping staff. Most resorts have safety procedures to follow, but an effective safety program needs to include education and individual involvement.
Education. Posters and regular meetings with staff raise awareness and communicate best safety practices for a specific source of injury.
Maintaining data on each type of injury sustained can provide information to focus on reducing the most prevalent causes of injury.
Site Safety Committees. MasterCorp has begun to set up site safety committees with a representative from every position on staff. Each position provides real-world awareness of safety concerns and solutions. Together they formulate site-specific safety solutions.
