As a hotel owner, you are faced with many daily challenges—making sure your hotel is properly staffed, the guests are taken care of, and all the rooms are clean, as well as protecting your business from costly property damage and injury claims.
The direct expenses associated with paying damages and making repairs, as well as indirect costs, like investigating incidents, not being able to operate your business, and losing customers, can accumulate quickly. Also, if the media hears about a food poisoning or bedbug issue at your hotel, the impact could be devastating.
The first step toward putting together a solid safety plan is understanding the potential risks and then focusing your time on areas that are going to make the most impact.
To help get you started, here are a few key things to look for in your hotel.
Even with these safety precautions in place, losses can still occur. Time is money and customers are lost every day your building is out of commission. Protect your hotel with a comprehensive insurance plan that includes property insurance to cover your physical location, contents, and lost income, as well as liability insurance to protect your assets in the event of a lawsuit for negligence or an incident where your hotel is legally liable for someone’s injury or damage to property.
Choosing the right insurance can help your hotel prevent losses and improve your bottom line. To ensure the right coverage is in place, talk with an Acuity independent agent who specializes in the hospitality industry.
Safety is a win-win for everyone involved in hotel operations. It’s good business to keep your employees and guests safe, and it will keep your guests coming back for more!
