According to the UK Home Office, there were 596 fires in hotels or guest houses between April 2015 and March 2016 in England alone. Fortunately, this resulted in only one fatality but there were still 47 casualties requiring hospital treatment as a direct result of these incidents.
These numbers sound small but imagine if this happened in the hotel where you are the FSO nominated Responsible Person. The resulting investigations will involve a great deal more than having to answer a few awkward questions, as evidence will be required to prove that you carry out your compliance checks on a regular basis. By this, we mean that you will need to be able to show that…
But if the worst has happened, we must assume firstly that something has gone wrong (either in terms of process or equipment), also that much of the compliance documentation that you were in the habit of keeping so diligently may have been destroyed in its entirety. Your insurance will cover the cost of the physical damage all being well, but what about any third-party litigation claims or prosecutions that you may have to endure?
TourTrax provides a solution to ensure that all of the above checks are recorded and backed up automatically. All you need to do is instruct your competent persons to touch a basic Android smartphone to strategically placed RFID tags, on a regular basis. Information is then sent to a Microsoft Azure secure remote server, which is fully mirrored and backed-up. You can access this information daily if you like, just for peace of mind. But then if your worst nightmare becomes a reality? Well it just might keep you out of jail.
We can also set the system to alert you when ANY of the above activities have not happened as regularly, or at the times that you have specified that they should.
All this will cost you little more than the savings we will make using our specialist brokers and underwriters to lower your annual insurance premiums. So, ask yourself… why on earth wouldn’t you?
