      Educational Institute Adds New Safety Source DVDs

      Orlando, Florida, May 2013—The American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (EI) has added three new videos from Safety Source Productions to its line of risk management training resources, designed to provide hospitality employees with information to keep themselves and their guests safe. The new titles are:

      Human Trafficking

      Human trafficking is often facilitated using hotels as stopover points, while sexual exploitation sometimes happens in hotel rooms and hotel lounges. The “Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000” makes this activity a federal crime in the United States. Many organizations including hotels, airlines and others are stepping up to help combat this growing problem. This 8-minute DVD will help associates identify suspicious activity related to human trafficking and provide instruction on how to proceed with their suspicions. Preview the video here.

      Valet Safety Essentials

      This 14-minute DVD reviews key safety issues for valet parking professionals, including vehicular traffic, distracted drivers, weather, baggage handling, and parking in tight spaces. Guest service and courtesy are also discussed. Preview the video here.

      GHS: Hazard Communications

      Learn what the new GHS (Globally Harmonized System) is and how it works with your property’s current HAZCOM programs. Topics in this 17-minute DVD include: key points of the change, new symbols and labels, and new classifications. Preview the video here.

      Each DVD is available for $116.00 for AH&LA members and $145 for nonmembers. For more information, visit www.ahlei.org.
