Health and safety TIP

Did you know that over 50 % of injuries in the accommodation industry involve room attendants and housekeeping staff?


Developing safe work procedures for all positions is an important aspect in ensuring that your workers are completing their job duties in a safe manner. 


Worksafe BC has developed an excellent video series that demonstrates safe work procedures and provides instructions to prevent injuries for room attendants. These videos can be an excellent resource for training to ensure room attendants are using safe methods to making beds, cleaning bathrooms, wringing cloths, dusting high surfaces, emptying trash cans, and vacuuming.

Safe Work Procedures for Room Attendants


If you have any questions about building or enhancing your health and safety management program, including how to complete hazard assessment in order to develop safe job procedures,

please visit or send an email to and we would be happy to answer all your questions.
