Benefits to StaySafe
Your safety and security measures cost money. So it’s only logical that you expect a return of investment. That is why the StaySafe Certification program is measurable enabling hotels to demonstrate that positive safety & security management is good for business in many ways.
Our StaySafe Certification program creates consistency throughout the hotel or group and is built around international 'best practices'.
Although hotels are insured against a variety of losses, many associated costs are not recoverable, these are uninsured costs. The ratio between insured costs and uninsured costs lies in the range of 1:8 to 1:36, therefore every $ recovered from insurers will mean at least $8 is being wasted. These uninsured costs come straight off the bottom line profits.
