GBAC STAR gets Directory of accredited facilities

New GBAC STAR Facility Directory helps locate accredited facilities

The Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, has launched its GBAC STAR Facility Directory.

This new web-based tool allows users to identify facilities that have earned or committed to achieve GBAC STAR accreditation, the designation reserved for facilities that have demonstrated a thorough approach to cleaning, disinfection, and infection prevention.

Patricia Olinger, GBAC Executive Director, said: “We’re excited to unveil this new tool to help the public discover which facilities are taking important steps forward with their approach to cleaning. The GBAC STAR program has more than 250 facilities accredited and 3000-plus committed to accreditation in more than 80 countries, with additional facilities added daily. This results in an impressive directory that is easily searchable and always accessible.”

The GBAC STAR Facility Directory is a searchable listing of facilities around the world, including stadiums and arenas, convention centres, hotels, restaurants, airports, commercial facilities, and more. Users can search the directory by facility name, facility type, location, or keyword. Each resulting pin provides the property’s name, address, website, facility type, and accreditation status.

GBAC STAR accredited facilities have completed a rigorous screening process to ensure they are truly committed to: championing cleanliness; have established goals and risk mitigation strategies; implemented effective tools, equipment and supplies; and prioritised training, prevention, and preparation.

ISSA Executive Director, John Barrett, said: “GBAC STAR accreditation indicates that behind the scenes, facilities are properly conducting cleaning and disinfection to keep employees and visitors safe. This new directory is a visual resource that instils confidence in consumers as they aim to normalize their daily lives during this pandemic and into the future.”
