Post COVID- 19 Health and Safety Advancements at ETG

Health and safety have always been a priority for Elite Travel Group. Ever since we started our business 20 years ago, we have strived to do the best for tourism and our clients. As the world evolves into digitalization, we make sure to consistently adapt to the changes. Since 2010 we have been working with international expertise to address the health and safety of tourism suppliers.

As many of you already know, we have been working on a safety management system plan and workflow process. We intend to be able to conduct paperless safety inspections, audits, and checklists on-the-go by uploading safety forms.

WHAT ARE WE CURRENTLY WORKING ON?

Recently ETG is constantly working on 3 important directions:
The first one is supporting government institutions. We advise them on how to conduct a prevention plan and simple legislation that could be easily absorbed, and logistically implemented by tourism suppliers.

Secondly, we want to help the tourism suppliers with HCCAP Health Care Consumer Assistance Program – Training module. We plan to do so at a very low cost so that they can afford it and implement it. All this is tailored and certified by one of the most prestigious international partners. They have several decades of experience, on and offshore in safety management system implementation.

Lastly, the plan is that by the end of 2020, we will implement this digital solution for risk management and the safety management system. This program aims to prevent technical glitches, human failures, promote safety, and reduce risks. It will identify, assess, and control hazards to employees and the public in all operations. Currently, we are working on the actuality status of the COVID-19 pandemic case. We have implemented the daily, weekly, and monthly prevention plan inside the system.

WHAT ARE WE TRYING TO ACHIEVE?

To summarize, by working to fully digitize this process, we will take safety to the next level. There will be incident reports, toolbox talks, equipment tracking, mobility, natural disasters, hazard management, and much more.

We will be the sole player in Albania and the entire region, where suppliers will be qualified based on client reviews, sustainability qualification, their safety management system, and client behavior records. All this will be transparent in our software, bringing a whole different way of evaluation for these businesses, especially in Albania. Following the implementation of the safety management system, we will be looking forward to implementing standardization for a safer future for our clients, our suppliers, and our business.

We believe that life after Covid-19 will be different. Therefore, we must be prepared for future challenges. The global society, and particularly the fragile global tourism industry, must adapt to such globally disruptive events.
