Ergonomics in Housekeeping, Maintenance, Grounds, Engineering, F&B, Laundry Operations, Pool/Spa
Annual risk assessments are critical to helping hotel properties identify and address those conditions that can lead to slips, trips, falls, injuries, and accidental death of employees and guests from exposures to things such as electrical fire safety hazards, electrocution, fire hazards or drowning.

Laundry Noise and Airborne Chemical Exposures
Industrial hygiene assessments identify risks that can affect employees’ long-term health as defined by OSHA and the American Council of Government and Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH).  Our assessment reports provide recommendations, to reduce the risk of long-term illnesses.

Food Safety
Safe food handling and cleaning of cooking and dining utensils and surfaces are critical to both employee and guest health, and a property’s reputation and ability to compete in the marketplace.

Guest safety in Rooms, Public Areas, Pools, and Spas
The safety of guests and employees is critical, whether the risks come from within, or from outside a property, which may (or may not) be located in a high-risk, high-crime area.

OSHA Compliance & Employee Safety
OSHA’s mission is to ensure that employees work in a safe and healthful environment by setting and enforcing standards, and by providing training, outreach, education, and assistance. Employers must comply with all applicable OSHA standards. They must also comply with the General Duty Clause of the OSH Act, which requires employers to keep their workplace free of serious recognized hazards.

Property/Fire Protection
Protecting life and property is a key responsibility of any organization, and our consultants know what to look for, and where to look for it. Making sure that employees, guests, and visitors can safely evacuate a structure in a fire, making sure that fire suppression and sprinkler systems are regularly tested and in good working order is key to protecting life, property, and your business.

Hazardous Materials Management
Hazardous Materials Management assessments review how an organization stores, uses and discards any chemicals anywhere onsite. The assessment report provides recommendations to help organizations avoid situations that could result in serious injury or fatality of an employee, guest, or visitor or damage to the environment we all share.

Ergonomic Resources

Ergonomics Training
Ergonomics training can be provided for every employee group on a property, including housekeeping, F&B, laundry, maintenance/engineering, grounds crews, and back office.  The ergonomics training courses we provide include housekeeper best practices training, material handling, tool usage, good work practices, office ergonomics.  This training is designed to be understandable and useful, and includes real-life demonstrations and examples.

Hazardous Materials Management
Employees and managers must know how to safely use, handle and dispose of any chemicals used onsite, per stringent state and federal environmental protection rules and regulations

Bloodborne Pathogens Training
Training is required of employees who may be exposed to dangerous pathogens carried in various bodily fluids, and which pose an extreme risk to life, and physical and mental health. Proper training and procedures help to reduce the risk of inadvertent contact with bloodborne pathogens, as well as how to avoid cross-contamination of other surfaces with pathogens, to which visitors and guests may be inadvertently exposed.

We work with interior designers and architects to show them how the design of properties and their internal fixtures, furniture, and decor impacts the ability of team members to safely, efficiently and effectively clean and maintain them.
