Ensure Cleanliness of Your Facilities

Destinations International and Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, Announce Partnership to Help Destinations International’s Members Ensure the Cleanliness of Facilities in their Destinations

Destinations International is partnering with ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association. ISSA’s mission is to change the way the world views cleaning, thereby increasing the appreciation for cleaning as an investment in human health, the environment, and an improved bottom line.

GBAC Star Facility Accreditation Program

The Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, has developed the GBAC STAR™ Facility Accreditation Program to help facilities establish a comprehensive system of cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention for their staff and their building. GBAC STAR—the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response, and recovery accreditation for facilities—includes a comprehensive framework that ensures facilities operate with  the proper cleaning protocols, disinfection techniques, and work practices to combat biohazards and infectious diseases like the novel coronavirus. GBAC STAR instills confidence in customers, employees and stakeholders that facilities have proven systems in place to deliver clean, safe, and healthy environments—especially as venues reopen following the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fundamentals Online Course: Cleaning & Disinfection Principles

ISSA and GBAC offer the GBAC Fundamentals Online Course: Cleaning & Disinfection Principles, an e-learning course that teaches infection and contamination control measures for infectious disease outbreak situations with a special emphasis on SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19. The interactive workshop includes information on the origin, symptoms, and treatment of COVID-19 as well as information useful for those responsible for cleaning and disinfecting areas that may be contaminated with the coronavirus. Successful participants earn a certificate of completion from GBAC along with the “GBAC-Trained Technician” designation.
