What You Need To Know About The Hotel Housekeeping Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention Program

industry news Sep 10, 2018

Beginning July 1st, 2018, any company considered a “lodging establishment” employer is required to establish and maintain a written musculoskeletal injury prevention program.  

What does that mean?

Elevation Corporate Health have been providing these services to hospitality and lodging establishments for years, and we can help.  

Don’t take our work for it, take it from one of our clients:

If you would like to have a consultation and learn how Elevation can help you comply with this new program, contact us at [email protected].

It means that if you’re a hotel, motel, resort, or bed and breakfast inn, you must now offer the following to all housekeeping employees within the first 3 months of their employment:

  • Worksite evaluations for identifying and evaluating housekeeping hazards.
  • Specific risks of the job must be identified.
  • Injury investigations.
  • Corrective measures must be put into place.
  • Training.
  • Record-keeping

We will start with a consultation of your establishment, observe your workers, and establish a work ready evaluation.  From there, we can identify the specific risk of the job, recommend corrective measures and training, and work one-on-one with your employees who may have been injured on the job.

“I would describe Work Ready as the best run program I have experienced in my roughly 15 years of working for our company. I experienced: Clear goals with reducing injuries & work comp expense by setting minimum physical fitness standards…and a supportive Work Ready team with Elevation Corporate Health that had a great attitude. I would recommend that Work Ready be used as a model for future programs.“
