UK housekeepers gear up for Olympics challenge

Teams of the best housekeepers in the country are getting ready to compete in the grand final of the UK Housekeeping Association (UKHA) Olympics 2014.

Taking place at Chelsea Football Club on 24 January, the event will see teams of housekeepers, room attendant and porters take part in a series of challenges to test their health and safety knowledge, eye for detail and quality of bed-making.

Each team will be made up of four members of staff from different hotels, with the stipulation that the housekeeper or hotel manager presenting the team has to be a member of UKHA. Contracted staff will be allowed, providing they mainly work in the hotel represented.

As well as selecting a winning team, the competition will also award a Rising Star for the Hospitality Guild Award for an ambitious housekeeper who does not need to be a member of the winning team.

The largest housekeeper association in Europe, the UKHA seeks to recognise, support, train and develop housekeepers and housekeeping standards across all sections of the hospitality industry.
