Simmons at BIU workshop
The Minister of Economic Development and Tourism, the Hon. Jamahl Simmons, JP MP, attended a Health and Safety Workshop for housekeepers organized by the Bermuda Industrial Union at the BIU headquarters.
Approximately 30 participants, consisting of hotel Room Attendants (male and female), Supervisors and Executive Housekeepers attended and the Minister provided opening remarks.
Minister Simmons said, “Our Housekeepers are the unsung heroes of Bermuda Tourism. It is they who not only have the responsibility of maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness at our properties but also do it with the warm and cheerful personality for which Bermudians are renowned. You work hard, you rarely receive the accolades you deserve and I am pleased to take this opportunity to salute you!
The government is committed to working with our industry partners to get more Bermudians into the tourism industry, advancing within the tourism industry and taking up leadership roles within the tourism industry. I encourage each of you to take advantage of the existing and expanding training opportunities that will enable you to progress to as high as you desire, within tourism”
