Christmas can be a quiet time for hotels, but it can also be a time for increased crime. In particular, the AHLA has heard of ATMs being stolen from the lobbies of a number of Alberta hotels. Our insurance program partners at Western Financial Group highly encourage that you:

  • Securely bolt your ATM in place;
  • Locate your ATM away from doors and windows in a well-lit and regularly patrolled area;
  • Ensure your staff have access to a phone at all times; and
  • Lock your front doors overnight.

If you have staff working alone this holiday season, please review Alberta’s Working Alone Guidelines, as well as your own working alone procedures, to ensure everyone remains safe.
