The second department I chose to work with was the environmental health and safety department. This department ensures that the hotel runs effectively under government laws. They are in charge of ensuring the resort has all the proper licensing to operate the business. Furthermore, they provide alternative ways to maintain their earth check status. The manager Jardine also told us some methods the hotel uses to recycle, such as collecting plastic water bottles. They also sell the shredded paper to local companies that may need it. We also learned about their waste management procedures.
After speaking about the department’s responsibility, I conducted two audits. These audits occurred at the kids’ camp and the nurses’ station. After completing this task, I gain more insight into safety and what they do in the department. I enjoyed doing this as I did hands-on work alongside the manager. The best part of it was that she gave me a mango. So delicious and juicy!
