Hawaiian Hotel Cited for Safety Violations

The five-star hotel on the popular tourist destination of Waikiki Beach received 17 citations for safety failures.

A Hawaiian hotel has been cited for 14 serious violations that will cost the business, located on Waikiki Beach,  $49,000 in fines. Halekulani Hotel, owned and operated by Halekulani Corp., received these citations following a routine OSHA investigation into the safety practices of the establishment.

"The hotel industry is one of the biggest employers in Hawaii, and it's critical that owners and operators have strong safety and health programs," said Galen Lemke, director of OSHA's Honolulu Area Office, in a statement on the OSHA website. "Halekulani has an obligation to protect its staff and ensure a safe working environment."

These violations involved a lack of protective wear and failed maintenance and upkeep to the location’s fire extinguishers, among other offenses. In addition to these issues, the hotel also received three violations that were not serious related to the labeling and access of electrical panels and gas cylinders.

The five-star hotel employs 800 people and accommodates 450 rooms of guests. The investigation in January is the result of an increased local emphasis on hotel safety.
