The paper "Industry Work Placement - Rydges Bell City" is a perfect example of a business assignment. Rydges Bell City is located in Melbourne. It is strategically located such that it is within close distance to the city, the airport and various attraction sites, which enables it to serve several clients every day (Rydges Bell City 2013). Therefore, the institution is a beehive of activity, which makes it an ideal place for students to gain hands-on experience in various operations and activities. The hotel has various facilities including open-plan studios, a bar, a restaurant, conference rooms, accommodation rooms and self-contained kitchenettes (Rydges Bell City 2013). During my 24 hours of work placement in Rydges Bell City, I worked in three different departments or areas: hotel rooms (8 hours), a restaurant (8 hours) and the main kitchen (8 hours).
In hotel rooms, I assisted in the cleaning of rooms and beddings immediately after a client leaves. In the restaurant, I assisted in the cleaning of the floor, table mats and table cloths. This involved collecting dirty table cloths and mats and cleaning them, as well as cleaning floors when dirty.
In the main kitchen, I was involved in cleaning the floor, which we did periodically after some time as directed by the kitchen manager. Cleaning Materials and Equipment Cleaning equipment: dustpans, feather brush, dusters, mops, sponges, scrub brush, scrub bucket, trash bag, vacuum cleaner, carpet brush, washing machine. Vacuum cleaners and carpet brushes were used for cleaning first-class guest rooms that have carpets. I used sponges to clean tables and other small surfaces while scrub brushes and scrub buckets were used to scrub floors to remove stains.
Mops and dusters were used to clean weak dirt on floors especially the restaurant floor, which has tiles. Washing machines were used for laundry work especially bed sheets, towels and tablecloths. Cleaning materials: they included cleaning agents and disinfectants. Cleaning agents included Vim, liquid soap, bar soap, sanitizer (sanifresh), anol, Jik and freshener. Disinfectants included Dettol, Jik and deodorizers. Disinfectants were added in rinsing water when doing laundry work.
