Hotel auditing company steps in to improve standards and level of service on a global stage.
A decline in tourism figures has called for Mauritius to reposition itself as a leading luxury destination. As part of its rapid global expansion, independent health and safety experts, Check Safety First has launched operations with hotels in Mauritius to improve standards and help the country provide the highest quality to visitors.

Representing two-thirds of arrivals, visitors from Europe have dropped 9.3 percent in the past year, which is a massive decline for the Indian Ocean island’s $10 billion economy. With tour operators and hotel groups demanding that Mauritius steps up to meet the quality offerings of its competitors,  Check Safety First will play an instrumental part in helping establishments meet safety expectations from Europe and other key markets.

The company is introducing its established risk management system, E-Cristal to hotels, which will include its full module set-up including food, water, fire, room and general safety. Check Safety First will provide on-going support to establishments on the island, helping to drive up standards to an acceptable level. Starting in Mauritius, the company also plans to extend its services to La Reunion, Seychelles and the Maldives.

“For decades, Mauritius has been known as a luxury destination with a spectacular setting for honeymooners and holidaymakers looking for a special trip away. However, in an increasingly competitive marketplace, the country needs to work hard to match or exceed the quality of service offered by other destinations," explains Mark Harrington, CEO at Check Safety First.

“Tourists now expect the highest standards in every capacity and health and safety is a key part of this. As part of own global growth strategy, we look forward to working with Mauritius hotels, helping the island market itself as a top luxury destination,” concludes Harrington.
