COVID-19 Preventive Measures Standard

COVID-19 Preventive Measures Standard

Building Back Trust and Assuring Confidence

New Health and Safety Risk Management Standard for Hospitality Sector

The coronavirus pandemic has major consequences worldwide for the way people work, recreate and organize their social lives. Following global lockdowns in Spring 2020, organizations in the hospitality and entertainment sectors are gradually restarting operations and reopening for business using recommended health and safety guidelines. To support organizations in regaining trust and building back consumer confidence, the Kiwa Nederland B.V. and ABS QE Quality Assurance Alliance is now offering the COVID-19 Preventive Measures Standard to help verify your health and safety management system.

Achieving this standard and adopting its risk management framework will help organizations demonstrate that they have a system in place to manage staff and consumer safety in a pandemic environment.

A globally accredited certification provider, ABS QE will evaluate whether an organization has adopted a process to identify COVID-19 hazards and has a plan in place to address the health and safety requirements associated with these risks. Once demonstrated, Kiwa will issue a quality assurance mark verifying there are processes and preventive measures in place to mitigate and reduce COVID-19 risks.
