Kathmandu, December 17
Hyatt Regency Kathmandu says it has achieved the Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation, the gold standard for prepared facilities.
Under the guidance of GBAC, a Division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, the hotel has implemented the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention in its premises, the company informs in a statement on Thursday.
“As the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation, GBAC STAR™ helps organisations establish protocols and procedures, offers expert-led training and assesses a facility’s readiness for bio-risk situations,” the statement says, “The programme verifies that Hyatt Regency Kathmandu implements best practices to prepare for, respond to and recover from outbreaks and pandemics.”
To achieve GBAC STAR™ accreditation, the hotel was required to demonstrate compliance with the programme’s 20 core elements, which range from standard operating procedures and risk assessment strategies to personal protective equipment and emergency preparedness and response measures.
