Obtaining the QIMA Safe Place Label provides businesses, their staff, suppliers and customers with peace of mind that strict standards of cleanliness are in place as sites reopen after COVID-19 lockdowns and businesses adjust to heightened expectations relating to health and hygiene measures.
We've developed sanitation audit protocols specific to retail stores, hotels, fitness centers and restaurants with our hygiene and auditing experts that incorporate key recommendations from global government authorities as to best practice. These protocols can be customized to meet your country's specific health and hygiene standards, or the operating requirements of your business.
Upon successful completion of the initial sanitation audit and resolution of non-conformities, your site will be endorsed with the QIMA Safe Place Label – a public validation that your site is compliant with health and safety guidelines.
To ensure the ongoing health and safety of your retail store, hotel, fitness center or restaurant, the process to obtain the QIMA Safe Place Label involves:
Initial Engagement Workshop
The workshop is held via a webinar to introduce the program, clarify the criteria and provide guidance as to best practice sanitation processes.
Initial Onsite Assessment
The onsite assessment is performed by an expert QIMA auditor, typically in one day. A traditional audit process will be followed involving observation, document review and interviews with staff and customers. Deviations in implementation of prevention and sanitation measures will identified.
At the completion of the assessment, a report containing any necessary corrective measures will be issued.
Remote Verification Follow-Ups
QIMA will continue to provide regular (weekly or monthly) remote assessments following the initial onsite audit. These assessments will be performed remotely via video by the QIMA auditor, working with the hotel/store appointed representative. Progress on corrective measures will be tracked.
The QIMA Safe Place sanitation audit for hotel sites is intended to control hygiene risk factors present in hotels, protecting guests and enabling ongoing operations during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
