Every hotel’s operations strategy must account for the safety of their frontline staff. Fortunately, in recent years, staff safety technology has become much more reliable, effective, and user-friendly.
The most popular form of device used by hotels for staff safety are wireless safety panic buttons due to their discrete nature. These buttons are easy to install and provide quick access to de-escalate incidents and summon help quickly with one press of a button.
As well as protecting staff when they need it most, safety buttons claim to:
- Increase job satisfaction
- Elevate company culture
- Reduce workers' compensation claims, liability insurance, turnover costs, and more.
We caught up with Parminder Batra, CEO of TraknProtect at HITEC to discuss how TraknProtect Safety Buttons are creating a safer environment for both staff and guests.
TRAKNPROTECT SAFETY BUTTONS
TraknProtect has developed an award-winning panic button platform specifically designed for hotel employees and other front-line staff. Purpose-built safety buttons allow staff, such as housekeeping, to summon assistance quickly and effectively when they need it most. As well as protecting employees, TraknProtect’s safety platform ultimately provides hoteliers and hotel companies with peace of mind while complying with local laws & union requirements.
Not only is TraknProtect’s mission to have a meaningful impact on safety in hotels but their passion is to educate our industry and assist in the eradication of human trafficking. According to CNBC, “hotels and motels are among the most common venues for trafficking due to easy access, willingness to accept cash, and lack of facility maintenance.” These venues, therefore, have a responsibility to detect, monitor, and report potential trafficking. TraknProtect is helping staff to be better equipped and trained in these types of situations.
In addition to the development and deployment of safety buttons for front-line employees, TraknProtect is also an IoT (Internet of Things) platform. TraknProtect has additional solutions which automate operational processes such as inventory, room tray & vendor tracking.
TraknProtect’s clients include several well-known brands such as Aloft, IHG, Hyatt, Accor, and more.
