How risky is your hospitality business?

Risk management is a key part of the everyday running of any business.

Within the hospitality sector, there are many ‘risks’ that are encountered on a regular basis, such as:

  • Products passing their expiry or ‘use by’ dates – To circumvent this issue, it is key to ensure stock rotation and that delivery management levels are in place and fully adhered to.
  • Security of stock is another common risk – All areas that hold stock should be able to be locked away using, for example, shutters covering spirits and wine on the bar top, locks on all fridges and cupboards holding stock, and secure storage areas.
  • CCTV is a key component of a hospitality business – Cameras must be placed in the best possible location. If there is a camera covering a bar, for example, it must cover the critical areas such as tills, spirits and any other high value products.
  • Key monitoring – If there are different keys to allow individuals into secure areas, there are systems that could be put into place to ensure this can be monitored.
