Each hotel has an internal responsible for implementing and monitoring all the measures determined by the “Safe & Clean” seal, in compliance with the local health authorities. As part of the new requirements, all hotels are implementing enhanced levels of hygiene and using specific disinfectants against COVID-19 in all public areas, including lobbies, restaurants, swimming pools and guest rooms.
“The assignment of this “Safe & Clean” seal is an important step in preparation for our hotels to welcome guest again with confidence and reinforces the already rigorous hygiene and safety protocols that our hotels have always followed”, says Adriana Jacinto, Director of Operational Excellence for the hotel chain in Portugal.
These measures include enhanced hygiene and disinfection within bedrooms, cleaning several times a day surfaces and objects in common use (including counters, light and elevator switches, door handles, cabinet handles), availability of hand sanitizers at various points in the hotel and a variety of specific extra measures to ensure the health of guests during their stay, such as disinfection of luggage on arrival and key cards. These guidelines also extend to all back of house operations from supply chain deliveries to culinary preparation areas and housekeeping procedures.
Hotels are implementing all these measures with respect for sustainability, buying, whenever possible, individual protection equipment from local suppliers, and using environment friendly cleaning products.
Regarding its employees, the hotels will measure body temperature daily, reinforce the necessary training in hygiene and safety and in the internal protocol of each hotel, as well as provide personal protective equipment.
