Research in the simplest and most basic sense refers to the aspect of inquiring and looking into the matter with the purpose of analyzing and understanding it for what it really is. Thus, for research to be termed to be proper, conclusive and elaborate, there are certain specific procedures and outlines that it must follow, or what is commonly referred to as a research methodology. For the purpose of this research project, I will discuss in details and principles, the health and environmental safety measures and standards that a commercial business such as a hotel must meet.
Hotels by the way of their operations and setting are designed to give food and other recreational services to the members of the public and their customers in general. Thus, it would only be fair and imperative if the hotel would offer and provide only the best of services to the customers. So that they would leave them with memories to cherish and treasure for the rest of their lives. Based on the facts, it is imperative that the environmental and health standards that are displayed by the hotels ought to be of the highest standards and quality.
Thus, I would use the government agencies such as a department of health and environment to provide information on the irreducible minimums in these aspects. Additionally I would draw and obtain information from the general public on what their expectations and demands are as far as health and environmental safety relative to the hotel is. For instance, the members of the public who form the largest client base may feel uneasy with smoking in public, and in effect, it would be a source of data for the research project. Lastly, I would also seek the input and feel of the workers in those respective hotels. So that I can get their perspective and what they would like to have incorporated or integrated in the due process (Vold, 9).
In retrospect, this would be an exploratory type of research. This is because I would seek to establish and gauge the standards which are sufficient for a hotel to be cleared by the government and gain the approval of the customers (Sutthijakra, 549). For instance, there are customers who may be in support of smoking. On the other hand, others may not be in the support of the practice. Thus, it would be crucial to determining the compromise that would be fair to both the smokers and the non-smokers. In a similar breadth and line of reasoning, I would use questionnaires, interviews and obtain information from written records and sources. Thus, these would be my basis and foundation of the study where I would get my information, given the fact that this is research case that seems to touch on the welfare of a society.
This section will decipher the standards that have been set in other places such as schools, hospitals, churches, malls, etc. It is to imply, what are the environmental and health safety standards that must be adhere to in such and similar places. Therefore, it would be in the best interest of the study to strike a common ground and gauge the balance of what is supposed to be reasonable and fair as far as environmental and health safety are concerned.
Presentation and analysis of Data
It is imperative to note that the collected data would be subjected to a rigorous scrutiny to ascertain its effectiveness, level of believability and that the inferences meet the scientific standards of rigor and analysis. Subsequently, in circumstance where there would be a variance in terms of the collected data, the technique of analysis of variance ANOVA would be employed in full.
