The Hotel Industry’s Commitment to
Enhancing Employee Safety
In an unprecedented effort in September 2018, AHLA announced the 5-Star Promise, a voluntary commitment by AHLA members to enhance policies, trainings, and resources, including employee safety devices, that together are aimed and strengthening safety and security for hotel employees and guests.
Nearly 60 member companies representing an estimated 20,000 hotel properties have made the pledge. As a result, an estimated 1.2 million employees will be better protected on the job. Today, nearly all these hotels have implemented four pillars of the pledge. In addition, more than 5,000 hotels have implemented employee safety devices. The industry has taken additional measures to ensure the safety of our employees and guests in response to COVID-19.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 and the resulting drop in travel has devastated the hotel industry, unlike any crisis we have ever seen. Many hotels are struggling to survive, with potentially thousands at risk of closing their doors forever. Given these extenuating circumstances, many hotels will need additional time to implement employee safety devices nationwide.
