One of the biggest challenges in hotel management is securing and maintaining the property and the people inside it. As a hotel owner, you are responsible for the welfare of your staff and guests. Once a security issue arises, you can’t go back and fix it. With that, investing in building security will save you from incurring a lot of losses and lawsuits in the future.
ZEN Rooms takes security matters seriously. Our very own Senior Hotel Operations Manager who is also a Certified First Aider (CFA) and Certified Security and Safety Practitioner (CSSP) shares basic things that any hotel owner or staff must know to ensure the utmost security.
Here are tips to help you secure your hotel:
1. Make sure your entry and exit doors are properly monitored.
These are the weakest and most crucial points of your hotel since it is difficult to control who goes in and out. It’s better to implement tighter security measures to protect your hotel, staff, and guests than be sorry later.
2. Get enough security personnel.
You may have installed lots of CCTV cameras or even lots of locks, but without the manpower to monitor these, these security features are of no use since they can be destroyed anytime.
3. Educate your hotel staff on security policies and emergency protocols.
Your hotel staff should be well-informed so they can be vigilant, and act accordingly when suspicious activity takes place. Invest in sending your staff to advanced security seminars. You will lose more money if your hotel is damaged and stolen from.
He gives hotel owners with one reminder that they should always keep in mind: “There is no impenetrable barrier.”
