Web Seminar on “Security in Hotels”

Published by ekoukidou on

The pandemic situation and the lockdown did not disturb the association’s educational activities. Before the end of 2020, a live web seminar was implemented for interested individuals and members of KDETYD, lasting 2 hours, on the topic “Hotel Security” in collaboration with Mr. Deligiannis Petros.

Tourism Security is a concept that has a wide range and includes from the most serious incidents, such as terrorism, natural disaster, etc. to a minor injury. No one can predict, where and when a Safety-related incident will occur, but it is the duty of a tourism company to take any precautionary measures needed to eliminate the risk of occurrence. The training aims at threat analysis, security incident prevention and response procedures.

Security issues concern all employees in a hospitality unit, permanent or seasonal staff. They concern anyone who works in the administration, in the reception, in the offices, the technicians-maintenance, the employees in the F&B sectors of the hotel (kitchen, bar), etc.
