“Be Prepared!” – BHA Health and Security Workshop

‘Be prepared’ is the motto of every good Boy Scout. Bali Hotels Association [BHA], an association of over 100 star rated hotels in Bali is following the same motto.

The Association organized a very comprehensive workshop together with its partners for almost 100 participants on July 14th at Sanur Paradise Plaza Hotel. The workshop is part of BHA’s security and safety empowerment program, geared to boost the resilience of the islands hotel industry to any threat.

The range of subjects was wide. Participants learned about medical emergencies, rabies and other diseases as well as tsunami preparedness, risk management, surveillance detection and the Integrated Police Radio Community [IPRC], a public private sector initiative that connects hotels and businesses in the South of Bali via UHF radio to the police and vice versa. Participants were also introduced to BHA’s Hotel Security and Safety Self Assessment,- a tool created to assist hotel managers to conduct general security and safety assessments in order to improve their own emergency planning and as well as security and safety procedures.

‘I am happy about the variety of speakers and participants attending this workshop’ said Alexander Kesper, BHA Security and Safety Executive. ‘It shows that Bali’s security and safety community is well connected with the islands hotel industry and that we support each other in order to achieve our common goal: A safer and friendlier Bali for all of us.’

The Workshop was supported through contributions by SOS Clinic Bali, Bali Animal Welfare Association [BAWA], The German Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System [GITEWS], United Nations Department Security and Safety [UNDSS], IPRC,- the Integrated Police Radio Community and Sanur Paradise Plaza Hotel.
