COVID-19: Health & Safety of Hospitality Associates is Essential for Returning Employees & New Hires

Prevention and being proactive versus reactive in how you care for the health and safety of your Associates, is more important to your hotel's workforce and bottom-line, than ever before. Without healthy, injury-free Associates, profit goals are difficult if not impossible to achieve.

The cost of each soft-tissue injury is equal to the cost of cleaning over 6,500 rooms.

Managers, supervisors and employees need to have the education, tools, skills and prevention-based behaviors necessary, to maintain their health during and long after the COVID-19 pandemic subsides. The goal is to improve employee health, increase productivity and to have every employee remain injury-free, every shift and throughout their entire career.
