A number of IAVM member venues along with a host of convention centers in Tokyo are among the latest GBAC STAR accredited facilities.
“Facilities like airports, convention centers, hotels, schools, and others need to understand the fundamentals behind cleaning, disinfection, and infection prevention,” said GBAC Executive Director Patricia Olinger. “GBAC STAR accreditation is an incredible tool for not only educating cleaning professionals, but for giving building visitors greater peace of mind about their health and safety.”
The performance-based GBAC STAR program requires facilities to meet specific requirements in order to earn accreditation and display the seal that promotes their commitment to public health and safety. Thousands of facilities have either achieved or are currently working towards accreditation so that their teams understand how to prepare for, respond to, and recover from biorisks. Outsourced commercial cleaning providers, destinations, and events can also achieve accreditation through the GBAC STAR™ Service, GBAC STAR™ Destination, and GBAC STAR™ Event accreditation programs respectively.
