Aitken Spence’s Turyaa Chennai certified for safety & hygiene: Become first hotel in India to receive Bureau Veritas certification
Aitken Spence Hotels stated that its operation in India, Turyaa Chennai, has been certified by Bureau Veritas for safety and hygiene procedures and processes that are in line with globally recognised best practices to mitigate COVID-19, becoming the first hotel or resort in India to receive the certification.
Bureau Veritas, a global risk assessment company, reviewed the 140-room city hotel located in Chennai’s IT Corridor. The verification encompassed its extensive health and safety measures and enhanced protocols introduced at the outset of the COVID-19 outbreak. The process examined all operational aspects of the hotel from guests, staff and supplier touch points to awareness creation and information dissemination.
The certification criteria are based on policies, procedures and resources implemented by the hotel to manage the hygiene and social distancing risks in the current context. The assessment and disclosures were completed in accordance with applicable standards for testing, certification and inspection of businesses.
Turyaa Chennai, along with the portfolio of other Aitken Spence Hotels, is committed to assist national and international objectives to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Turyaa Chennai, together with Aitken Spence Hotels’ other properties in Sri Lanka, Maldives and Oman, devised a risk management procedure for COVID-19, in line with the Company’s risk management strategy.
Moreover, the blueprint ‘SpenceSafe’ was prepared to face the anticipated effects of the pandemic during the short to medium and long- term. The blueprint was shared among Turyaa Chennai’s partners and guests, outlining the efforts in place to inspire confidence and travel.
