Slide 5

This slide contains information about the hierarchical structure of safety and security department in a hotel, with a general manager heading it.

Slide 6

This slide represents security concerns and challenges which the hotel has to face. These are guests’ privacy, unexpected thefts, guest’s antisocial behavior, unauthorized visitors, employee safety, cybercrimes, crash of security systems, and high audit costs.

Slide 7

This slide represents the security concern of guests’ privacy at a hotel. The techniques to ensure guests privacy are: Avoiding too much personalization, knocking thrice by pausing in between, announcing the department, not knocking, if privacy sign is displayed on the board, and registering under fake name.

Instructor’s Notes:

Following are the techniques by which hotels can ensure their guests’ privacy:

  • Avoid Too Much Personalization: While offering personalized services, hotels should avoid getting too personal by asking creepy questions. For example, they can use birthdays and anniversaries but should never use financial activities or health related conditions while offering personalized services
  • Knock Thrice, Pausing in Between: Knocking at the guest's room should be done in a normal pitch, with a pause of 10-15 seconds. It should be done thrice before entering the guest room
  • Announce the Department: Right after knocking on the door, the hotel staff should announce their department name so that the guests are aware of who is at the door
  • Do not Knock the Door, if Privacy Sign is Displayed: The hotel staff must respect the sign that guests display outside their rooms. The sign could be a "do not disturb" or "privacy please"
  • Registering Under Fake Name: For celebrities and popular personalities, the hotel can, upon checking their original IDs and proofs, can register them under fake name to meet their demand for privacy

Slide 8

This slide contains information about the security concern of unexpected thefts at the hotel. Guests, themselves, or even the hotel staff could be responsible for thefts at hotel.

Slide 9

This slide represents the ways to lower the number of theft incidents at a hotel. These could be by installing CCTVs, making use of technology, cleaning room in presence of guests, extensively checking room before guests check out, imprinting hotel’s name on inventory and regular scanning of visitors and staff.

Instructor’s Notes:

Techniques to minimize thefts at hotels are:

  • Install CCTVs and Make Use of Technology: Install CCTVs and anti-theft devices in the hotel, such as RFID (Radio Frequency Identification)-based equipment to control thefts
  • Clean Occupied Rooms in Presence of Guests: Generally, cleaning of the rooms is done in the absence of guests. It is always advisable to ask guests when their rooms can be cleaned in their presence.
  • Extensively Check the Room Before Guests’ Checkout: The hotel front-office should ensure thorough checking of every room during checkout and ask guests to wait till the housekeeping team confirms that no hotel items are missing
  • Imprint the Hotel’s Name on Inventory: Branding the inventory is again a way to avoid thefts, as guests hesitate to steal branded amenities fearing ridicule. Also, branding acts as proof if they are caught sneaking away with the hotel's belongings
  • Properly Scan Visitors and Staff: It is important to properly scan visitors, the staff, and their baggage when they leave hotel premises. Extra vigilance has to be kept on a suspicious person

Slide 10

This slide contains information about the security concern of guests’ antisocial behavior at a hotel. The violence between guests, vandalism, threatening behavior, and sexual harassment against staff are common anti-social behaviors encountered in the industry.

Slide 11

This slide contains information about the security concern of unauthorized visitors at the hotel. Unauthorized visitors are those who do not have actual or implied permission to be on the hotel premises. They violate guests’ privacy and can be a threat as their intentions are unclear.

Slide 12

This slide contains information about how to deal with unauthorized visitors at the hotel. Firstly, ask the person if they are the hotel’s guest, then ask for their room key and finally let them know the hotel’s policies regarding the use of facilities.

Slide 13

This slide lists security concerns on employees’ safety at a hotel. These are harassment and violence, electrical safety, hazardous chemicals, and lone working.

Instructor’s Notes:

Safety concerns for the hotel staff are:

  • Harassment and Violence: The act where a person is abused, intimidated, or assaulted in their workplace is violence or harassment. It has become a significant security concern for hotel staff these days. The chances of this occurring are high as alcohol is served to guests till late night hours, with the staff working till late
  • Electrical Safety: The occurrence of electrical hazards is high at a hotel. A hotel is full of small and large electrical equipment with varying voltage supplies which could prove fatal for both the staff and guests, if not managed systematically and carefully
  • Hazardous Chemicals: Hazardous chemicals that are used in the hospitality industry could be in the form of washing-up liquids, rinse-aids, drain-cleaning products, dishwasher detergents, and disinfectants. These chemicals could be corrosive and can cause skin burns if splashed onto the body
  • Lone Working: In hotels, staff work in rotational shifts that can lead to a hotel employee working alone without direct supervision which can be a safety concern, especially for the female staff

Slide 14

This slide highlights the measures that hotel must deploy to ensure employee safety from harassment and violence, electrical appliances, hazardous chemicals, and concerns over working alone.

Slide 15

This slide highlights the security concern of cyber security at a hotel where a hacker breaks into hotel management system can extract hotel’s as well as guests’ private data for illegal activities.

Instructor’s Notes:

The types of cyber-attacks that hotels might be exposed to are:

  • Dark Hotel Hacking: Dark hotel hackers first gains access to a hotel's Wi-Fi system. Then, they forge digital certificates, convincing victims to download a malicious software that peeps into their private information. This is specifically done to target high-profile guests
  • DDoS (Denial of Service) Attacks: In a DDoS attack, the hacker targets the hotel's computer system. The hacker tries to bring down the entire computer system by flooding the server with internet traffic. Then, the victim may be threatened with a devastating attack to make him pay ransom
  • Phishing Attacks: The term phishing means sending or receiving impersonated emails that aim to trick the victim and push them to reveal sensitive information such as log-in details, credit/debit card details, passwords etc.
  • POS (Point of Sales) Attacks: A point of sale (POS) or payment card attack is a third-party crime that involves the vendor rather than the hotel itself. The attacker may take out money from guests’ account
  • Ransom Ware: Ransom ware is a malware that threatens to publish data if the victims fail to pay to have the data restored. Machines are infected with a virus that encrypts the computer’s data
  • Malware: Malware is spying software that can enter the computer when the target-victim opens email attachments, downloads software, or opens pop-up links. It can access and destroy the computer's data and, infect it with viruses, delete or install files on its own

Slide 16

This slide highlights preventive techniques to avoid cyber-crimes at a hotel such as using up-to-date browsers, software and regularly scanning hard drives for any malware or virus.

Slide 17

This slide highlights the security concern of overwhelmed security systems at a hotel, wherein electronic security gadgets like fire and smoke alarm systems, access control, CCTVs, etc., become unmanageable if there is an ineffective IT team in-charge of these.

Slide 18

This slide represents measures to handle crash of security systems at a hotel. These are constructing a de-centralized system, outsourcing security systems, and employing technical experts.

Instructor’s Notes:

Techniques to handle overwhelmed security systems at hotel are:

  • Construct a Decentralized System: A decentralized security system makes information security everyone’s responsibility with its emphasis on building a strong culture of security and data protection. For hackers too, it is not that easy to infect a decentralized system
  • Outsource Security Systems: An outsourced security system at the hotel would be able to more effectively maintain the antivirus software, run necessary updates and protect the hotel from IT security threats, since they must have dealt with hospitality businesses before
  • Employ Technical Experts: Hotels can hire technical experts to secure data networks, and prevent security breaches

Slide 19

This slide highlights the security concern of high audit costs at hotels due to huge gap between the number of qualified security auditors and the mushrooming of new hotels.

Slide 20

This slide represents security measures to be followed for facility protection at hotel. These measures could be: Key management, video surveillance, vehicle protections, and access control.

Slide 21

This slide highlights key management as a security measure for facility protection in a hotel. An appropriate key control and management system is useful for tracking and securing key usage throughout day-to-day operations. 

Instructor’s Notes:

Effective key management at hotel:

  • Improves Accountability: In hotels, a key management system is designed in a manner that the keys’ usage can be tracked. It ensures that keys can only be returned by the individual who originally accessed them, which makes the person accountable
  • Streamlines Workflow: Since all activities related to keys' access are monitored, and the reporting time acts as a kind of timesheet, it also verifies the number of hours the employee worked. Such coordination results in better workflow and eventually cost reduction with the prevention of preventing unnecessary tracking
  • Better Efficiency: In the absence of a key management system, hotels have to maintain a key register and ensure that facility keys are secured in a tamper-proof cabinet when not in use. An automated proper key management system does automatic tracking of keys at all locations, reducing the burden of taking care of the keys

Slide 22

This slide highlights video surveillance as a security measure for facility protection in a hotel. Cameras covering the front desk area and other public areas reduce the likelihood of criminality or bad behavior and ensure law enforcement while providing visual record of any incidents. 

Instructor’s Notes:
 Video surveillance is vital for the hotel as it helps in:

  • Early Detection of Intruders: A functional security camera helps keep away vandals, intruders, and trespassers, which could prove troublesome for the hotel
  • Competitive Edge: A hotel can deliver the best possible experience only if guests and visitors can lodge in without the fear of robbery, attacks, and damages. This goes a long way and promotes the brand image of the hotel too
  • Proof for Legal Issues: In case a legal issue arises for the hotel, video evidence proves to be a big aid for the hotel and its guests. It can be useful whenever some incident takes place at the hotel premises. Also, it could minimize property and liability claims, thus saving a lot of money
  • Assists in Loss Prevention: Missing cash, non-hotel guests using amenities, food or bar revenue dip could indicate theft at a hotel that can be mitigated with the help of cameras as these provide visibility even in hidden areas. It leads to loss prevention for the hotel.

Slide 23

This slide contains information about measures to improve vehicle protection in hotel parking area. The first two steps of which are: maximizing visibility with a CCTV system and illuminating shadowed areas with bright lighting.

Slide 24

This slide represents access control as a technique for hotel facility security enhancement. An access control system allows for centralized control, restricts unauthorized access, asset protection, and regulated floor-wise access.

Instructor’s Notes:

Following are the benefits of an access control system at a hotel:

  • Centralized Control: Centralized control is one of the most important features of an access control system that facilitates managing a large number of people across hotel chains
  • Restricts Unauthorized Access: An access control system proves beneficial for hotel owners as it prevents unauthorized individuals from entering prohibited areas
  • Asset Protection: A biometric device or a fingerprint access control system makes sure that only people registered in the system enter the hotel premises, while controlling unauthorized access that may damage a hotel’s assets
  • Regulated Floor-wise Access: With the support of an access control system, hotel owners can restrict unauthorized visitors from entering specific floors, thus making it much easier to manage the movement of guests and hotel staff. It is extremely beneficial if a celebrity or a popular public figure happens to be staying at the hotel

Slide 25

This slide represents security measures to be followed for human protection at hotel. These measures are panic buttons, evacuation procedures, and deployment of security staff. 

Slide 26

This slide contains information about the usage and benefits of panic buttons at a hotel for human protection and lists the importance of a panic button at a hotel. These are improved security, boost in reputation, contended guests and staff, and lesser liability.

Instructor’s Notes:

Following are the benefits of a panic button at hotel:

  • Improved Security: Knowing that help is just a button away, the hotel staff and employees feel secure at all times. Also, this security measure deters criminals from targeting the hotel
  • Boost in Reputation: Guests, while booking a hotel, give due importance to security. Installing panic buttons at the hotel indicates that it is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment for its guests and staff
  • Contended Guests and Staff: It is definite that guests would be at ease and feel more comfortable when they are aware of the extra level of security that their hotel offers. Moreover, employees also feel secure working at a hotel
  • Lower Liability: The alarm panic button will alert authorities about the danger, if an incident occurs, and the hotel will be able to reduce its liability. The hotel can prove that it took reasonable steps to ensure safety

Slide 27

This slide lists situations where a panic button can be used in a hotel which are: When the staff is grievously injured, is under violent attack; there is a medical emergency, and to summon help during a terrorist attack.

Instructor’s Notes:

Following are the situations when a panic button can be used:

  • For Grievously Injured Staff: Accidents can happen anywhere on a hotel premises. A panic button can be extremely useful if a staff member gets injured. For instance, when one of the staff members has fallen down the stairs and is unable to reach for help. Here, they can press the wearable panic button
  • When Staff is Under Violent Attack: A situation involving an aggressive guest or a vicious attack on the hotel staff can be immediately dealt with the help of a panic button. In extreme cases, it acts like a lifesaver
  • For a Chronically-Ill Guest: Guests suffering from chronic illnesses such as diabetes or epilepsy can be issued a panic button to alert hotel staff members instead of calling a receptionist. The same is very useful for a person having anxiety issues
  • For a Medical Emergency: Panic alarm buttons can help signal staff members whenever immediate attention is required. For example, if a guest suffers from a cardiac arrest
  • To Summon Help During a Terrorist Attack: In any high-stress situation (a terrorist attack could be one of them), instant communication with security is vital. Thus, panic alarm buttons provide a quick link for help

Slide 32

This slide showcases the protection measures to be taken by the hotel to secure multiple assets such as cash, phones and mobile devices, valuables, and confidential documents. 

Instructor’s Notes:

  • In-house Safes: Safety is a growing concern both for the guests and the hotel requires that their assets are safe. Availability of safes in the hotels ensures a feeling of confidence both for the guests and the hotel by storing their valuables, confidential documents, etc., in a secure area
  • Phone and Mobile Device Security: Mobile device management allows for the administration of mobile devices, laptops, tablets, etc., from remote locations. For example, it ensures that audit rooms and business phones in the hotel have emergency services available on them or the staff have emergency services if phone lines are down
  • Cash Handling Safety: Cash handling and storage should be physically restricted only to authorized personnel. The hotel should ensure that all cash and related items are stored in a fire-proof secure area when not in use

Slide 34

This slide contains information about main sources of fire at hotel which are: sparking in faulty electrical equipment, improper disposal of cigarette butts etc. It also lists preventive measures to avoid fire accidents such as placing fire extinguishers strategically, testing fire alarms and conducting drills etc.

Instructor’s Notes:

Preventive measures to avoid fire incidents at a hotel are:

  • Place Fire Extinguishers Strategically: Ensure that the fire extinguishers in hotels have a proper weight and gauge limit, and replace them if they do not have one. Extinguishers rated Classes A, B, and C, which are capable of extinguishing fires involving paper, wood, oils, and gases, respectively should be placed at strategic locations in a hotel
  • Prominent Display of Exit Signs: At the time of the fire, conditions can be chaotic and confusing, which is why exit signs should be illuminated and prominently displayed to guide people even if their vision is obscured
  • Test Fire Alarms and Conduct Drills: Fire alarms quickly warn everyone that a potential danger exists. Testing of fire alarms will help locate faults (if any) that can be corrected before any disaster strikes. Also, fire drills for the employees should be conducted as part of the emergency action plan
  • Free up Emergency Doorways: Employees must be made aware that places where bulletin boards are covered in paper are high-risk fire areas; here a little spark would turn into a big fire. Moreover, emergency doorways should not be blocked by other things. Any sort of boxes or equipment should be moved aside so they don't slow down the process of moving out of the hotel
  • Hold Regular Inspections: Not keeping up-to-date with fire safety system and neglecting their annual services results in faulty equipment. Proper inspection of alarms, lights, and extinguishers should be carried out
