Your Total Solution For Health and Safety Compliance In The Hospitality and Professional Services Industry
Hospitality and Professional Services
To ensure a healthy and safe working environment in the hospitality industry, everyone involved needs to have a strong understanding of their own health and safety, as well as the health and safety of their fellow employees, employers and most importantly, their clients.
Everyone in the organisation has a part to play in making sure nobody is put at risk. When planning and carrying out operations, employees are faced with a number of hazards and potential dangers they need to avoid. They need to be trained in a number of health and safety aspects for the hospitality industry specifically. These include hygiene and housekeeping, evacuation procedures, how to deal with bomb threats, the dangers associated with food and food products, as well as how to identify common hazards and eliminate them immediately e.g. spillages.

Workplace inspections help prevent incidents, accidents, injuries, illnesses and fatalities.

Health and Safety committees should plan, conduct, report and monitor inspections on a regular basis to ensure that your OHS plan is effective and no fatal hazards are present in the workplace.
