Even more facilities get GBAC STAR accreditation

Facilities around the globe achieve GBAC STAR accreditation

The Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, has announced the latest list of 75 facilities to achieve GBAC STAR accreditation.

Tucson Airport Authority in Tucson, AZ, UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena in Milwaukee, WI, the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, KY, Hyatt properties around the world, and many more join a growing list of accredited facilities.

Patricia Olinger, GBAC Executive Director, said: “Facilities that achieve GBAC STAR have proven that their approach to cleaning, disinfection and infection prevention will protect building visitors, residents, and employees. And because accreditation is renewed annually, these organisations demonstrate they are committed to continually improving their programs.”

GBAC STAR accreditation means a facility knows how to prepare, respond, and recover from infectious disease outbreaks and biohazard situations. The program, designed for facilities of all types and sizes, outlines 20 program elements that each have specific performance and guidance criteria for facilities to meet to earn accreditation. The GBAC STAR Facility Directory includes a list of all facilities that are GBAC STAR accredited and those that have committed to achieve accreditation.

Some of the other notable venues to receive GBAC STAR Facility accreditation include Calgary Stampede in Alberta, Canada, Hill & Markes in Amsterdam, NY, the Bojangles Entertainment Complex in Charlotte, NC, Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire, Scotland, the Miller High Life Theatre in Milwaukee, WI, and Diamonds Thudufushi Maldives in South Ari Atoll, Maldives.

ISSA Executive Director, John Barret, commented: “We’ve seen tremendous interest in GBAC STAR from facilities around the world. By helping organisations understand how to document and execute their cleaning procedures, we’re paving the way for a healthier and safer world.”
