General Health & Safety, Swimming Pool and Fire Safety:
We take Health and Safety very seiously, and all incidents that occur are to be reported to a member of staff so that a report can be typed up and entered with our records. We have multiple members of staff that are trained in First Aid and can assist if required.
We also take Health and Safety in our Swimming Pools very seriously. Our maintenance and upkeeping staff are fully trained in Swimming Pool safety and care. Our pools are cheked daily and we will close them if suspected to be a problem and/or health risk to our guests. The correct amount and type of chemicals are used to ensure the pools are clean and healthy for use. Our swimming pool areas are not guarded by a Life Guard, therefore we ask that each user to sign into and out of the swimming pool at the Reception Desks.
All our properties have Fire Alarms systems installed that are up to the current standard of Fire Alarm Requirements. Every bedroom, housekeeping and maintenance cupboard and public area has the relivent sensor in place, whether it be a Smoke, Heat or CO2 detector. A Manual Fire Alarm Call Point is located at the top of every Fire Escape and Stairwell as well as next to every External Exitting Door. Automatic / Magenetic Fire Door closers are also in place to prevent the spread of fire. Fire Extinguishers are checked by an external company regularly and are in placed in the relavent locations. All receptionists and nightporters are fully trained in how to use and understand the Fire Alarms Systems.
Emergency Lighting is in place in the relavent locations in our hotels, with clear labelling of where the nearest escape is. Both maintaned and non-maintaned emergency lighting is in use and are checked regurally by our maintenance team.
