Today, Halloween is celebrated with trick-or-treating, costumes, pumpkin carving and more. But the essential ingredient – ghosts – hasn’t vanished.

For some, these chilling apparitions don’t disappear at the stroke of midnight. In fact, quite a few restaurants around the world have some chilling tales which will see your skin crawling no matter what time of the year.

New course: WHS - Slips, trips, and falls with Luke Croston

Working in the hospitality industry means being on the move from the moment you clock on to the moment you clock off. Often it seems there is no time for stressing about hazards around the workplace.

The International Labour Organization estimates that 2.3 million people succumb to work-related accidents or diseases every year. Fortunately, there are simple ways to protect yourself and your teammates to ensure that injuries on the job are avoided.

New course: Manual handling with Luke Croston

Anyone who works in the hospitality industry knows that heavy lifting comes with the job. Whether it's a box of cleaning products, a box of fresh vegetables or a carton of milk, lifting heavy objects is a day-to-day task. But, with heavy objects comes the risk of injury - statistics show that 39% of workplace incidents stem from body stressing.

Working in a fast-paced workplace means that, sometimes, things can get overlooked. It can also mean that when help is needed, there might not be anybody available to ask. With the clock ticking and tasks needed to be done, this is when injuries can occur.

Heading to Ireland with Typsy Part 1

Posted by Emily Marr on Sep 28, 2018 10:15:00 AM
Earlier this year we gave our Typsy Tribe members the chance to win a trip to Ireland as part of our Pour the Perfect Pint competition.  After watching our Tribe pour the perfect pint of Guinness and create some Guinness inspired limmericks, we then had the tough decision of choosing a winner. 
 
After much deliberation, we came to a decision and sent two lucky winners - Aman and Jaspreet - to Dublin where they enjoyed five nights of fun including a behind the scenes tour of the Guinness Storehouse, dinner at a Michelin star restaurant and more.
 
Catch up on Aman's trip in his diary entries and find out if any of the Irish luck rubbed off on him.
