What’s Wrong With This Picture?

We have a great safety program and have not had an accident for the first three months of this year and I think it is due to the safety incentive program we have.

We had just finished a very successful year of safety bingo and decided it was time to change things up and come up with a new program. During a brainstorming session at our monthly safety committee meeting, we found out we have an artist on the team, Kathy Edwards of the Housekeeping Team.

We wondered how we could bring attention to some of the common and not so common safety problems in the hotel. Out of this meeting came “What’s Wrong With This Picture”.

The poster for the contest is hanging by the back Team Member entrance. We have a plastic box attached to put your entries in, and everyone who enters gets a prize like a candy bar. The person who finds the most safety violations in the picture receives a gift certificate to the gift shop, dinner for two at our Bistro, or a night stay at one of our properties. The prizes are awarded at our monthly CARE rally. If we have a tie, we do a drawing. And if a department has an accident, they are disqualified from the game.

How many safety violations can you find?

A couple answers to get you started: Mopping without a caution sign; Luggage blocking the fire exit
