GBAC STAR checks in at more hotels

GBAC STAR accreditation checks in at more Hyatt properties and other facilities

The Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, has announced that 50 facilities have achieved GBAC STAR accreditation recently.

The Forum in Inglewood, CA; the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, MN; 40 Hyatt properties; and other facilities around the world can display the coveted GBAC STAR accreditation seal throughout their locations to give visitors and employees added assurance about their health and safety protocols.

GBAC Executive Director, Patricia Olinger, said: “While a facility may look and smell clean, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the space has been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. The GBAC STAR accreditation process helps facilities learn the proper cleaning, disinfection, and infection prevention processes so they can carry these out on a daily basis.”

Other facilities accredited include: EGS Facility Management in Dubai, UAE; Lynwood Convention Center, WA; Alila Solo in Jakarta, Indonesia; The Point Distillery in New Port Richey, FA; and The Eliza Jane in New Orleans, LA.

GBAC STAR is performance based and was developed by experts who have spent their careers focusing on creating protocols for facilities to reduce risk during outbreaks. All current and upcoming accreditations are searchable via the GBAC STAR Facility Directory, making it incredibly easy for the public to understand which facilities are dedicated to the new standard of clean.

ISSA Executive Director, John Barrett, added: “With each new addition to the list of accredited locations, we are taking yet another step in the right direction to make facilities safer during these uncertain times. Meanwhile, the GBAC STAR Facility Directory tracks all pending and confirmed accreditations to keep consumers updated on places that are responsibly responding to today’s infectious disease threats.”
