Hospitality Industry Guide to Safety 2014/15 – Released

HM7-4-Chart-Image72dpiPro-Visual Publishing has just released its newest edition of the Hospitality Industry Guide to Safety. In collaboration with the National Safety Council of Australia and SafeWork Australia, the guide aims to provide health and safety information and advice for all hospitality managers and employees.

The Code of Practice outlines how to properly manage work health and safety risks, which leads to the topic of Risk Management. This process is used by various organisations to identify, assess and control hazards in order to reduce the risk of injury. There are key steps involved with risk management and it is essential that employee’s are aware of the hazards that could potentially arise from the workplace. The guide continues to feature beneficial health and safety tips on best ways to manage the industry’s most common hazards and risks, for example, burns and scalds, electricity, hazardous substances or chemicals, as well as slips, trips and falls.

In the hospitality industry, it is imperative to prepare and plan for emergencies. There are essential elements that must be complied with in order to ensure that all workers are evacuated safely in the case of an emergency. This includes identifying specific employees’ responsibilities, establishing a planning and review committee, formulating an emergency contact list and safety procedures. Furthermore, emergency planning aims to provide the best possible training for all in the workplace and to reduce the level of risk to people, property and the environment.
