New HSS eBook: Safety Matters
“Safety Matters: A Guide to Safety and Hospitality Contingent Labor”
Atlanta, GA (05/10/2022) – Hospitality Staffing Solutions (HSS), the leading staffing and services provider to the hospitality industry nationwide, is pleased to announce the release of its most recent eBook, Safety Matters: A Guide to Safety and Hospitality Contingent Labor.
HSS Regional Safety Managers Jay Segovia and Pablo Landaverde assembled this guide for hospitality leaders looking to maximize safety for staff and guests alike.
“While there are a variety of ways properties can keep their workers safe, training and education are central to on-the-job welfare,” said Jay Sogovia. “More specifically, training workers in safety best practices and informing clients and site managers about any liability they could face if something does happen. Doing so can help reduce worker injuries, and as a result, lower worker comp claims.”
As hospitality continues to recover from the impacts of COVID-19, the industry is grappling with an unprecedented labor crunch. This has led to many hotels, resorts, and casinos to increasingly rely on outside agencies to find a reliable supply of vital personnel. Contingent labor is a vital part of the healthy operation of a property, but it is important to understand that the safety of these workers is equally important.
Hospitality employees regularly encounter a variety of potentially hazardous situations during their shifts. These can be anything from exposures to chemicals or pathogens when cleaning, to bodily strains when moving or lifting furniture or other heavy loads, and a variety of personal security scenarios and other risks to the welfare of staff and guests. While there are a variety of ways properties can keep their workforce safe, training and education are central to on-the-job welfare.
Safety Matters: A Guide to Safety and Hospitality Contingent Labor is a valuable resource for any hospitality leader to review and regularly reference for guidance on how to keep staff and guests safe.
- Why safety matters now more than ever
- Who is responsible for worker safety
- What is the common myths and misconceptions in hospitality when it comes to safety
- What are the most common types of hazards hospitality staff face
- Why labor partnerships need to extend to partnerships in safety
“As a leader in Hospitality Staffing, HSS understands the importance of safety for our staff, permanent employees and guests,” said Landaverde. “That’s why we invest in comprehensive training, continuously innovate solutions that allow us to track and manage incidents, and prioritize clear communication with the businesses we serve.”
