Lansing, Michigan, July 2013 - The new edition of Security and Loss Prevention Management, published by the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (EI), features three new chapters, a more global focus, and bonus online resources for instructors and students. Written by David M. Stipanuk and Raymond C. Ellis Jr., this textbook has been substantially updated to reflect current safety and security issues in the hospitality industry, presenting best practices and guidance related to risk management in the hospitality workplace. 

New chapters have been developed on the legal aspects of hotel security and safety, day-to-day safety issues in hotels, and employee safety. The new chapter on "Lodging Safety" covers slips, trips, and falls; fire safety; water safety issues; emergency power issues; indoor air quality; foodborne illness; and bed bugs.  The new chapter on "Employee Safety" covers the business case for employee safety and addresses how hotels can effectively manage their operations with safety in mind.

Other new information in the book includes information about guest and meeting planner rankings of security and safety practices, expanded discussion of emergency management with additional materials on natural disasters and terrorism, and material on payment card industry (PCI) compliance. 

The book is available with an online component, Eye on Awareness®: Hotel Security Training. In addition, the instructor resources available on EI's website have been expanded to include links to websites and online videos that provide additional information beyond what is discussed in the text, as well as supplemental legal cases and an appendix covering Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations for the lodging industry.
