The Use of Hoists in Guest Accommodation
This document provides an overview of the most common types of hoists that may be suitable for use in hotel rooms and aims to fill the current knowledge gap by providing guidance, meaning and practical application in the design, use and management of hoist systems. It is hoped that hoteliers will use this as guidance when endeavouring to meet their duties under the Equality Act and in doing so improve the quality of their service by providing truly inclusive guest accommodation. This illustrated document (published October 2017 and updated in 2018) is available below as a free download.
