The hospitality industry represents a major sector of the economy and encompasses service industries spanning from food service to tourism, hotels, accommodations and more. Because the industry is easily impacted by fluctuations in the economy, its workforce is prone to a high degree of turnover. What’s more, a large percentage of this workforce is comprised of younger, more inexperienced employees. As a result of these factors, frequent and effective safety training within the hospitality industry is critical in reducing vulnerability to the risk of injury, illness and even fatality.
Understanding the role of prevention and committing to a safety program can go a long way toward decreasing exposure to hazards and eliminating workplace incidents altogether. By implementing a safety program you can help your organization commit to building a more hospitable environment for your employees, which will ultimately translate to a better experience for your patrons.
