Miscellaneous- Ensuring a safe trip

The Federation of Tour Operators and travel association ABTA have launched a new training DVD providing key safety information on holiday accommodation.

Featuring broadcaster Konnie Huq and health and safety consultant Ian Greaves, ‘Safe & Sound’ is a modular-training DVD, which can be used for hoteliers, tour operators in the UK and overseas, and for students and lecturers involved in travel and tourism courses.

Topics covered in the DVD include: fire safety; food hygiene; pool safety; safety on the beach; children’s clubs and play areas; communicable diseases; and incident investigation.

Angela Hills, ABTA’s destination services manager, said: “We would encourage all suppliers of holiday accommodation as well as travel-providers to use this training DVD as part of their safety management procedures. The benefits of this training tool are that it can be used in its entirety, as a feature-length production forming part of a full health and safety training course, or in a modular format in bite-size chunks as a practical introduction, or refresher course in a specific subject.”
ABTA Members can purchase the DVD for £30, while the price for non-members is £125.
