Slip-and-fall injuries are undoubtedly the most common claims in the hospitality sector. But there is another hazard that is making a serious comeback—and is often an uncovered exposure in policies, resulting in costly losses.

Hotel Executive spotlights this timely issue with Kurt Meister, senior vice president and sales manager of Distinguished Programs, who lays out the realities of the legionella risk, including tips to safeguard properties. Meister also covers the common causes of injuries to staff and guests, from E. coli to bed bugs to harassment, and offers safeguarding suggestions.
