The Federation of Hotel & Restaurant Associations of India (FHRAI) in collaboration with the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has initiated a dedicated training programme on COVID-19 awareness for hospitality professionals across the country.
The programme aims to gear up hotel and restaurant players for a post lockdown scenario to ensure the safety of their guests and to instil customer confidence. It covers training on precautions to be taken and procedures that establishments should ensure implementing including receiving of raw materials, guest service, lobby management, and rooms maintenance post the lockdown gets lifted.
FHRAI will conduct the training in collaboration with its training partner – Parikshan. “The idea behind initiating this training programme is to have at least one senior staff thoroughly trained in safety, security and hygiene of an establishment. Once the lockdown is lifted, the trained staff will be in a position to impart knowledge to fellow staff in each section,” said Gurbaxish Singh Kohli, vice president of FHRAI.
The trainings are being conducted online using ZOOM platform and the training team is being led by Dr. V Pasupathy, national advisor of FHRAI.
