The ‘Go Safe’ certification initiative by DCT Abu Dhabi is aimed at delivering the best standards of hygiene.
The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) has announced its ‘Go Safe’ certification initiative, which is aimed at delivering the best standards of hygiene and cleanliness levels in the retail establishments and tourism in the emirate.
Since the launch in June, the initiative has been successfully rolled out at 146 of Abu Dhabi’s hotels.
Louvre Abu Dhabi being among the first venues to obtain the certification, the most recent establishments to get the ‘Go Safe’ certification include Emirates Palace and the St. Regis Abu Dhabi, which have been joined by key tourism sites Qasr Al Hosn and Cultural Foundation to earn the new health and safety certification.
With the increasing number of certified hotels and venues, it shows Abu Dhabi’s growing preparation to welcome guests and visitors once again.
With establishments assessed against 313 checkpoints that measure the standard of safety measures implemented, these measures include the adoption of social-distancing courses, checkpoints for temperature screenings, regular disinfection of all operational areas and Covid-19 testing for employees.
“In a short span of time, ‘Go Safe’ has successfully become the benchmark for hygiene and safety levels in Abu Dhabi, blazing a trail in setting world-class standards in cleanliness and improved public health,” said Ali Hassan Al Shaiba, Executive Director of Tourism and Marketing, at DCT Abu Dhabi.
“It is inspiring to witness the collective effort put forth by our team and industry partners to effectively implement the guidelines of the programme. ‘Go Safe’ was created with our consumers’ concerns in mind, to help boost their trust and confidence and allow them to experience the best of Abu Dhabi all whilst feeling safe and reassured.”
By the end of August 2020, , DCT Abu Dhabi aims to get the entire capital ‘Go Safe’ certified with more establishments currently undergoing the assessment process.
