TraknProtect Partners with Illinois Hospitality as Safety Button Legislation Passes for Statewide Adoption

08/12/2019

With the signing into law of the Illinois Hotel and Casino Safety Act this past Friday, TraknProtect, a provider of location-based technology purpose-built for the hotel industry, has revealed its intention to assist local area hotels in their adoption of the new ruling.

Under the Senate Bill 75, hotels and casinos statewide will be charged with providing customer-facing staff such as guest room attendants, room-service staff and casino floor employees with a safety or notification device "under circumstances where no other employee is present in the room or area." This follows the introduction of a safety button mandate for the City of Chicago over a year ago, while similar legislation is being enforced in cities such as Miami Beach, New Jersey and Washington State.
