EarthSafe has been developed by EarthCheck to help the tourism and travel industry to meet the new health, wellness and hygiene expectations now demanded in a COVID-19 recovery.
Hygiene, general visitor safety and cleanliness is expected to be front and centre in the forward travel and leisure plans for all visitor markets as we move into a reset and recovery phase where travel restrictions and physical distancing is gradually relaxed.
Business operators now need to offer services and experiences in a consistent, safe and sustainable manner which not only meets individual government regulations but the heightened expectations of travel and consumer markets.
EarthCheck mobilised a global task force of leading healthcare, hygiene, assurance professionals and business operators to help design and establish a set of COVID-19 safe work principles and hygiene guidelines which can be successfully applied throughout the tourism supply chain. The task force was led by Professor David Simmons from Lincoln University in New Zealand who is Chairman of the EarthCheck Research Institute.
For Destinations & Businesses
EarthSafe provides an operational program that allows either a business or destination to set up a practical management system for Health and Hygiene. It is acknowledged that in the context of a pandemic there is an ever-present risk of infection in the community.
The processes and procedures apply to all stakeholders including staff, operators, owners and customers. The EarthSafe programme can be also applied to destinations, precincts and the tourism supply chain.
ONLINE and Easy to USE
