Utilize this opportunity to improve the skills of your workforce.
Prevention and being proactive versus reactive in how you care for the health and safety of your Associates, can never again be overlooked. The cost is too high! Now more than ever, employees need to have the tools and skills necessary to take personal responsibility, to maintain their health, productivity and remain injury-free.
This business slowdown is a golden opportunity to give your Associates the education and training they need - and OSHA requires. This strategy applies to every employee, whether they are part of a core group who remains on the job, those who are currently working from home, Associates who are at home waiting to return to work, and all new hires.
Strategic thinking hoteliers will take advantage of this opportunity, knowing that when business turns around, their properties will have high occupancy rates again and scheduling training, whether mandatory or optional will become more challenging.
For most hotels, fall and winter are the best times to train on employees on prevention. Since awareness has been greatly elevated due to COVID-19, your Associates are much more open to receiving helpful information and skills on how to protect themselves from illnesses and injuries.
As business picks up, you will be glad you took this opportunity to improve employee engagement, health, efficiency and much more. Associates will feel better, feel cared for, have greater loyalty and have the training they need to be more the best employee possible. The right type of training makes every Associate more valuable to your hotel.

Create a Culture of Prevention & Retention
Recent publications have included many articles about the current labor shortage in the hospitality industry. These articles are not exaggerations as hoteliers worldwide are struggling to hire and retain qualified employees.
Money and benefits may attract workers, but the reason most team members choose to leave their positions is often because they do not feel appreciated, taken care of or they feel disconnected from management.
Consider the importance of a strong Culture of Prevention as a means to retain staff. The current generation of workers value a healthy work/life balance, which is something the hospitality industry has struggled to provide in the past. Developing a healthy and injury-free home and work environment and a Culture of Prevention, will set you apart from your competition by attracting and retaining quality Associates.
Taking Advantage of Low Occupancy
With high occupancy rates, some Hoteliers postpone OSHA mandated training. If you have been putting off effective and compliant training, now is the time to fulfill that mission, as well as prevent future OSHA fines.
