Following the Miami Dolphin’s announcement that Hard Rock Stadium would seek accreditation on cleaning protocols from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), Lincoln Financial Field, home to the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Staples Center in Los Angeles have also committed to achieve GBAC STAR facility accreditation.
This program aims to be a gold standard in third-party validation for facility preparedness to implement cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention. It is designed for any size facility—including schools, offices, hotels, airports, assisted care facilities, stadiums and other public venues.
With sports stadium owners and operators still working out the fine details on how to welcome back tens of thousands of fans to their facilites, having a cleaning and hygiene accreditation will help ease the fears and raise the comfort of returning visitors.
The industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation, GBAC STAR helps organizations establish protocols and procedures, offers expert-led training and assesses a facility’s preparedness for biorisk situations. The program ensures facilities use best practices to limit future outbreaks, empowers cleaning staff to do their jobs safety and effectively and gives customers greater peace of mind.
“Now is the time for businesses of every size to be transparent about the measures they’re taking to protect customers and employees, including proper cleaning and disinfection,” said ISSA executive director John Barrett.
