Amsterdam, This summer, Louvre Hotels Group focuses on rolling out a safety audit in all international hotels in more than fifty countries. The group has selected NSF International – a world leader in public health risk management – to receive an independent hotel-based assessment of safety and health measures implemented. The “Checked by NSF ™” program starts from today, July 27, 2020. The group is committed to having 100% of its network audited by September and anchored the new health measures in the daily lives of its employees and guests . For the French hotels, LHG has started a collaboration with Merieux Nutrisciences-France.
NSF International’s main mission is to monitor whether all health procedures introduced by Louvre Hotels Group in recent months have been properly applied in all its own, managed and franchised hotels. Priority is to guarantee the health of both employees and guests.
The audit is divided into three phases. Firstly, NSF International evaluates the protocols drawn up by Louvre Hotels Group. In addition, NSF International evaluates whether hotels apply these safety procedures correctly. Finally, the effectiveness of the program is monitored and improvements are made if necessary.
At the end of the inspection, the hotel owner or manager will receive a document indicating whether health protocols are being properly followed. If the audit result is positive, the hotel will receive the “Checked by NSF ™” label. Any recommendations should be implemented immediately, because a second audit will follow within a few weeks. In the Benelux, all hotels are visited by employees of NSF. “Guests deserve to know that their health and safety is a top priority. An NSF badge on the door provides that reassurance “. According to Werner Linders, Global Lead of NSF.
