Tips for maintaining hotel safety and security

Hotel owners in Georgia may be wondering how they can maintain a safe yet welcoming atmosphere on their properties, especially when they host public events. This will require a plan that manages to train staff on work safety, educate guests on the reasonable use of the property and enforce preexisting security policies.

Employee training is the bedrock for all other safety measures. Workers must be ready to manage all emergencies and address any suspicious behavior without putting their lives at risk. For security reasons, they should be fully trained in control access. This means doing things like limiting the distribution of keys and allowing only registered guests into the hotel. Furthermore, security guards should be posted at all entrances of any event rooms to deter disruptive characters.

The guests themselves should be reminded of their responsibilities, such as locking their room doors and never leaving phones and other devices unattended. They should also try to keep information like room numbers a secret from strangers.

Many hotels already have closed-circuit TV cameras and other safety technology installed. These are essential for monitoring bars, lounges, docks, parking lots and other busy public areas that may be frequented by muggers and pickpockets. Having a concierge escort guests can further minimize the number of luggage thefts.

A guest who incurs a personal injury in a slip-and-fall accident or even in a robbery might have the grounds for a premises liability claim against the property owner. A personal injury lawyer can bring in investigators to find the proof of a property owner's negligence. Legal counsel could then negotiate on the client's behalf for a fair settlement.
