AHLA Safe Stay Checklist
As you see on page 13, the AHLA guest checklist is a comprehensive list for cleaning protocols, guest considerations, and considerations for employees. This includes the important tip:
“Request guests and visitors use hand sanitizer and provide dispensers, touchless whenever possible, at primary guest entrances and contact areas.” Products like our basic sanitizer stand, premium sanitizer station, and dispensers are all touchless and meet these guidelines.
As you can see, there are many helpful tips, resources and guidelines for the hospitality industry to follow and consider. One commonality is the recommendations for sanitizer stands and products to help employees and guests feel and stay safe.
