



ensure enough employees are on duty to
provide satisfactory service for our guests,
expand the life of our furniture and fixtures,
control the cost of linen thus maximize profit,
improve and maintaining cleanliness of guest
rooms, and above all,
provide a clean, comfortable and highstandard environment in the hotel.
Unit 4: Scheduling Guest Room Maintenance
III. How to do guest room maintenance work?




It’s according to plan.
Arrange for specific staff to be in charge of
preparing necessary tools and cleaning
detergents.
Start work.
Communicate with Engineering and Front
Desk about each room status to ensure the
hotel has sufficient room categories to rent
every day. The rooms are blocked and released
accordingly.
Unit 4: Scheduling Guest Room Maintenance
 Engineering Department and Housekeeping do
maintenance together, pay attention to the room
category.
 Another factor the Housekeeping Dept. needs to
consider is occupancy. If it is too high, the
maintenance job has to be postponed.
 Another reason the Housekeeping Dept. needs to
communicate with Front Desk and Engineering
is to give them time to prepare for certain jobs.

Unit 1: Safety and Fire Prevention Guidelines/
Dealing with the Fire Situation
I.
Guidelines for safety and fire prevention in
the hotel



Prevention is from two aspects.
One is about guests. For example, guests are
not allowed to bring the inflammable or
explosive materials onto hotel premises. They
are forbidden to smoke in bed or use an
electric stove inside their room.
The other aspect is about the hotel itself.
Unit 1: Safety and Fire Prevention Guidelines/
Dealing with the Fire Situation
 No department can install temporary electrical
wires without approval from Security. Once
approved, it must be properly done by
Engineering.
 When we have to use dangerous items like latex,
gasoline, alcohol and paint, we are very careful
that they are not used close to a fire source.
Leftovers of the above items must be stored
properly.
 When we have to use a fire, Security Department
is informed and sufficient fire extinguishers
must be ready around this area.
Unit 1: Safety and Fire Prevention Guidelines/
Dealing with the Fire Situation
 Items in hotel storage are kept according fire
prevention rules, such as they cannot be put adjacent
to anything that creates heat (ex. Lights) and fire
exits must be provided.
 Hotel employees can only smoke in a designated area
or they will be punished according to the Staff
Handbook.
 Any employee who spots a fire should immediately
report it to the Fire Control Center in Security
Department.
Unit 1: Safety and Fire Prevention Guidelines/
Dealing with the Fire Situation
II. What areas does Security staff usually
check to prevent fires?






Boiler room
Transformer station
Elevator cage
Air-con room
Satellite
Receiving place, etc.
Unit 1: Safety and Fire Prevention Guidelines/
Dealing with the Fire Situation
III. In case of fire, how does Security staff handle it?



Once a fire incident is confirmed by Duty Manager and
Security staff /Assistant Executive Housekeeper, they’ll
inform their superiors immediately if unable to put out
the fire with extinguishers.
In a really serious situation, the Fire Department will be
called. In the meantime, the internal fire alarming
system and command system will be initiated. The
smoke exhaust system should be on.
Evacuate guests and hotel employees to a safe place via
fire exits.
Unit 1: Safety and Fire Prevention Guidelines/
Dealing with the Fire Situation
 Remember to never use elevators once there is a
fire.
 Move valuables and explosive items to a safe
place.
 When firemen arrive at the hotel, they need to be
briefed about the situation so Security staff will
work with them.
 Guests and employees cannot return to the hotel
without permission.
Unit 2: Preventing Theft
I.
What can the hotel staff do to prevent theft?




Front Desk staff locks safe boxes securely and opens
them with a guest present.
The hotel has special electronic locks to protect both
hotel and guests’ property.
Housekeeping Staff should have a good control of the
room keys. Room Attendants always take keys with
them, don’t entrust them to other’s care.
Security staff enforces patrol work. Being alert when
patrolling the hotel is important. If suspects are found,
staff questions them and send them to the police station
if an act of crime is confirmed. If unconfirmed but still
suspicious, they report it to the police and wait for
further instructions
Unit 2: Preventing Theft
II.
1.
2.
If a guest claims something valuable is missing,
how does Security staff handle it?
Security staff responsible for this kind of issue
will work with the Duty Manager, and Assistant
Executive Housekeeper.
Security staff will lead an investigation, for
example, they will look on the computer to find
out who may have entered the guest room during
certain periods of time. Various Room
Attendants on duty will be asked questions.
Unit 2: Preventing Theft
3.

5.
If an investigation shows that the hotel staff has
nothing to do with the case, the above-mentioned
people can help the guest to recall where he has
been, which people have come to his room. If
there is still no result, police will be phoned so
they can take over this case.
The hotel will assist police and guests whenever
possible.
An incident report will be filled in for the hotel’s
reference

Receiving Department


They check quantity, quality, size and other
important particulars such as manufacture
date, expiry date so neither Purchasing Staff
nor Suppliers can take advantage of the hotel.
If items are not up to standard, the Requisition
Department will suffer and eventually the
hotel’s products or services will be affected
negatively.

on the other hand, the Sales people know how
much to charge clients who use posters /
banners for functions in the hotel, enough
that will cover the cost of the flyers.
