First Desert Safari Company in the World Certified with Bureau Veritas’ Safety Label: Platinum Heritage Dubai
Platinum Heritage is the first desert safari experience provider worldwide to have secured the SafeGuardTM Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label by Bureau Veritas
We are honoured to have been awarded the SafeGuardTM Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label by Bureau Veritas, the independent global leader in inspecting and certifying companies’ quality, health and safety, environmental protection and social responsibility.
Our luxury and eco-friendly desert safaris are the first of their kind worldwide to be certified as safe by Bureau Veritas. This means that our strict protocols are compliant with local regulations, recognised industry best practices, and approved by leading epidemiologists.
The SafeGuard Label is given exclusively to those audited establishments who have successfully met hygiene and sanitation standards and are ensuring a safe environment for the business to restart.In light of COVID-19, we have taken this opportunity to further enhance these standards while maintaining the premium quality of our experiences. The safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff has always been our priority and as a responsible tourism company, industry leading health and safety standards are at our core.
Platinum Heritage CEO, Adam McEwan comments about the news, “since 1828, Bureau Veritas’ mission has been “establishing the truth without favouritism”. At Platinum Heritage, we didn’t simply want a certificate that can be easily obtained just to tick a box. Instead, we wanted the worlds most trusted independent auditor to evaluate and make recommendations to both our Covid-19 response and our general operations. It is with immense pride that after 192 years, we are the world’s first safari provider to meet their strict testing and inspection process”
Safely restarting business following the pandemic requires a number of important considerations and business owners are looking to the measures that need to be put in place to ensure a safe working and trading environment. Bureau Veritas, as a global leader in compliance, has established a SafeGuardTM Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label to help businesses reopen safely and certify that establishments have met hygiene and sanitation standards. The Hygiene Excellence suite of services are compliant with local regulations, recognised as industry best practices, and approved by leading epidemiologists. Bureau Veritas explains how they partner with clients and use five phases to regulate the critical certification.
Hotels and travel agencies have a responsibility to promote and send their guests to safe operators, and therefore need to be very careful when selecting which tours and activities to recommend. We are pleased to be able to present this solution to the industry.
