Course overview

Cleanliness is one of the biggest factors when guests choose whether to return to a hotel or resort. This is why housekeeping is so important. Unfortunately it can also be hazardous. Housekeepers are almost twice as likely to be injured as other hospitality workers. In fact, nine out of ten housekeepers say they have suffered work-related pain. Injuries can be serious, making it difficult or impossible to work. Some injuries can lead to permanent disabilities. This course will explain the most common housekeeping hazards and the best practices for eliminating or controlling those hazards. This course is designed for housekeeping and maintenance staff working in hotels and other hospitality settings. This course is available in English and Spanish.
