Abstract

Employee accidents have a powerful and negative affect on the bottom line and profitability of a hotel or resort. In this professional paper, a literature review will be used to analyze the frequency and severity of injuries in hotels and resorts. Then, a guideline for a hotel safety committee will be established in an effort to help hotels and resorts decrease the amount, severity, and ultimately the cost associated with employee accidents. This professional paper aims to establish and implement guidelines for hotel and/or resort safety committees in order to increase the percentage of safe work practices on and off the job.
