As part of its comprehensive preparations and new operating procedures for the reopening of venues, etc.venues has developed a new programme to deliver cleanliness and disinfection in its venues. The company will collaborate with Cleanology and with Navitas (formally known as the European Safety Bureau) - who will audit venues to the new COVID Controlled Certification scheme.
etc.venues ‘A breath of fresh care’ initiative, will apply Cleanology’s scientific approach to cleaning practices that build upon the current high standards where hospital grade products are already in use. The initiative, believed to be the first of its kind for UK venues, demonstrates a focus on cleanliness that will reassure both event planners and delegates throughout the etc.venues portfolio.
etc.venues director of operations, Guy Booth, said: “As a leading venue brand, we felt it important to set a new standard and to respond to the need for enhanced health and safety requirements. As we get back to business and reopen our venues, our clients, team members and suppliers need to be confident that our venues offer the highest standards of safety.”
Cleanology’s CEO, Dominic Ponniah, said: “COVID-19 brings significant new challenges to the cleaning of venues, but with our 15 years’ experience of working with etc.venues we will be bringing in elevated processes and enhanced team training and PPE to help delegates enjoy an even cleaner and safer visit. By using the most effective products and technology on the market, we are able to ensure that etc.venues is maintained to the highest possible standards of hygiene and cleanliness.”
