Quality in hotel rooms

The most important things that a hotel can offer its guests are quality, comfort, security and happiness. Since this is what this is what clients are looking for when staying in the establishment, whether its for leisure or business. Any hotel technique or strategy have this as the fundamental base for the success of the hotel, maintaining its clientele and providing a high level of service, without this nobody would want to stay in the accommodation.

The hotel sector and tourism in general have developed a lot and have gained much relevance in recent years, becoming important sources of income for many countries. Forcing them to be more and more meticulous and retailers to be the best before the competition.

One of the most important points that define the quality of hotels is the following:

– The services provided – With this I mean the ‘extras’ offered by the hotel to please the client and create a pleasant atmosphere for him, among these can be found: swimming pools, spas, restaurants, good cleaning …

7373426086_8d0e8cd4a5_z (1)Within this most important thing is undoubtedly the room and the state in which the hotel presents it, since it is where the guest will spend the most time and what will mark him the most whether its positive or negative. They must be designed and furnished so that they can reflect the harmony in the facilities, they must be clean, have good lighting and use good quality products.

There are also many types of rooms, which are made to fit the different needs and circumstances of each one; single, double, business, for families with babies, etc.

As I mentioned before, the cleanliness of the hotel is essentialdue to the fact that guests come to spend a pleasant time, and should not be let down. They define their needs and suppliers work to achieve those objectives; hotels need to adapt to it and be in a constant development of services and / or products that help to improve the quality.

Maintaining Safety and Protection for the Staff of Nuclear Power Plants in the UK

A picture of a nuclear plant

The UK calls itself home to 9 different nuclear power plants

The nuclear industry plays a major role in providing power for a number of countries in Europe, especially in countries like France, Spain and the UK. Several large companies maintain a presence on the British Isles, including Areva, Hitachi, EDF and Westinghouse. In addition, the Universities of Sheffield and Manchester maintain a partnership called the NAMRC, or the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, which allows academic and industrial actors from different backgrounds in the nuclear supply chain to collaborate on projects of mutual interest.

With nuclear power comes its advantages, such as minimal greenhouse gas emissions and relatively safe containment methods. However, an accident could strike at any moment, as exemplified by the disasters of Chernobyl, Three Mile Island and most recently, Fukushima. For this reason, a constant standard of safety and protection must be kept for workers at nuclear power plants, so they can conduct their jobs in a secure, effective fashion.

Robots of this style are often employed by nuclear plant staff for dangerous missions

A total of nine nuclear plants are currently active in the UK, eight of which maintained by EDF Energy, and the remaining one by Magnox Limited. Together, the plants provide nearly one fifth of all electricity in the UK. The provision of supplies and maintenance of equipment in a hostile environment, specifically in close proximity to nuclear reactors and the plants that contain them, must be possible throughout day and night on a year-round basis.

Security cameras and robotic technologies have provided new, technologically-advanced methods to ensure safety even when people cannot intervene on ground. Still, nothing matches the precision and skills offered by the human eye, or the dexterity afforded by a pair of hands.

Whether in the UK or elsewhere, the workers at a nuclear site find themselves constantly required to enter into zones of dangerously high levels of radiation, where they’re exposed to the hasards of this occupation. Regularly, the levels of radioactivity in these areas surpasses the normally acceptable levels for everyday life. All the heat generated from the reactor also causes concern, especially on warm summer days when the outside temperature can exceed those planned during the design process of the reactors.

Security and safety personnel can lower the amount of radiation to which they’re exposed by careful and assiduous use of vests, bodysuits, shoe covers, gloves and other protective equipment, as long as they remove these layers of protection after each exit from the dangerous zones.

Often, the workers must communicate with coworkers in other parts of the plant, if not from outside agencies or governmental structures, thanks to walkies-talkies and other closed-circuit communication devices.

In order to limit the amounts of radiation to which these brave workers are exposed, we’ve designed and manufactured protective covers for ear pieces and microphones of the type often necessary in this line of work. They allow the personnel to avoid getting into direct contact with a listening device that has already been exposed to radiation.

These headphone covers are a hygienic and disposable solution that slides over the listening portion of headsets. Using advanced manufacturing techniques, they’re crafted from a non-woven tissue of softened polypropylene, which is also entirely hypoallergenic.

Each pair of earphone covers comes in an individually-wrapped clear plastic bag to assure perfect hygiene each and every time. What’s more, this closed bag method allows the staff of the plant to conduct a quick examination of the situation before distributing used covers. If the bag appears like it’s been opened, or that one earphone cover is already missing, that’s probably an indication that the set has already been used in a hazardous zone.

After each visit into the dangerous areas of the reactor, the covers can be removed and disposed of in the proper manner to maintain a constant level and standard of safety.

It’s recommended to use a colour different from that of the headset, in order to permit easy identification. For example, on a black or gray headset, it makes the most sense to stick to white protective covers so your workers and managers can monitor the whole team’s status and ensure their safety.

Of course, this information could be of equal importance to those working in other preventative fields, such as health and security inspectors, responsible for assuming some professional risks when on the job.

How Important Are Headphone Covers During Cold & Flu Season?

How Important Are Headphone Covers During Cold & Flu Season?

The work force of almost every company is impacted during the brutal winter months of cold and flu season.  No matter how dedicated a sales, service or support team may be, winter brings with it a higher rate of absenteeism due primarily to health concerns.  And once a winter cold or flu hits an office it can spread easily, infecting other workers and making the problem worse.  Although companies encourage their employees to stay home when they’re sick, sometimes germs can be spread before the onset of noticeable symptoms.  This is when sanitation measures such as disposable headphone covers can make a big difference.

In a busy work centre, it is often the case that employees will share headsets with microphones.  This is especially true in call centres, sales offices and administrative support areas.    The use of these can easily result in the spread of germs as employees speak to customers, exhaling and even coughing onto the microphone part of the headset.  Germs are easily spread by other means as well, including the hands, which makes any part of the headset that touches a person a likely suspect when it comes to the spread of the cold and flu virus.  Although this can lead to big problems, it can also be easily mitigated.

 

The spread of a cold or flu virus can easily land many members of a work force in bed for several days.

This impacts on the company as a whole in many difference ways.  First, they lose out on a large portion of their staff which creates extra work for the remaining staff as well as a backlog in the amount of work to do.  In a customer service setting this can easily result in customers receiving less than stellar support which can have a direct impact on overall sales.

A company which simply begins to employ the use of disposable headset and microphone covers effectively stops the spread of germs in its tracks.

Employees simply need to slip these covers off at the end of their shift, throw them in the bin and it’s done.  The next employee can then place fresh covers onto the headset as needed and won’t have to worry about catching their colleague’s cold.  This can help prevent the spread of a cold no matter how severe.  As a result, the company will see fewer employees calling out sick, saving them thousands over the course of the cold and flu season.
