The hospitality industry is one of the largest industries in the United Kingdom, employing around 8% of the national workforce and contributing £60 – £70 billion to the UK economy every year.
However, around 1-in-30 workplace injuries occur in this sector, which is in part due to the vast nature of establishment types and the risks that they present – from slips & trips to kitchen fires.
Because each hospitality establishment faces unique health & safety challenges, compliance specialists are required in order provide solutions that are perfectly suited to each individual business.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) holds sole authority for the enforcement, investigation and prosecution of occupational health & safety, including in hospitality.
Alongside enforcing the law, the HSE provides additional resources for hospitality establishments to improve overall safety in their premises: https://www.hse.gov.uk/catering/index.htm
In the food & beverage sub-sector especially, due to the variety of risks and hazards that are present in settings such as commercial kitchens, hotels, restaurants, cafes, pubs etc., the prevalence of accidents is high – as well as the variety in the types of accidents.
Because of this, the HSE especially stress the importance of risk assessing and employee health & safety training – both which play a crucial part in reducing accidents and creating safer workplaces.
Occupational Health & Safety software (which is simply known as health and safety software) assists in the efficient management of safety compliance by making manual processes digital and centrally accessible.
Hospitality health and safety software provides a central platform for monitoring all your establishment’s health & safety metrics, alongside the following capabilities and others:
Some OHS software systems will have more functions that others, however the purpose is to adopt a system which provides services that are suitable for your industry and add value to your health & safety processes
Many injuries in the hospitality sector are reported every year to the HSE. It is important to effectively manage your health and safety to prevents injury and ill health to your employees.
Implementing a health & safety software system like Smartlog® will eliminate the use of existing paper-based processes, saving time and costs in the process. A digital system makes the management process easier and more streamlined by vastly reducing admin tasks.
In hospitality, employers are obliged to provide good management, supervision and effective training – such as fire safety, manual handling and food hygiene for example.
So if your OHS health and safety software system hosts eLearning courses or functions as a Learning Management System (LMS), the employee training benefits are massive both in terms of cost and for convenience.
As part of health and safety management of your business, you must control the risks in your establishment by conducting a risk assessment – which is required by law.
