We all treat hotels like a home-from-home, but increasingly they are a target for criminals or terrorists. So how can you know where it is safest to stay? GSA provides the answer. We help hospitality venues around the world clearly demonstrate the steps they have taken to ensure the safety of their guests.
We do this through the world’s only independently verified, hotel security accreditation scheme, which is underpinned by our years of top-level security expertise. This year your guests are facing a new kind of threat.
In response, we have launched a COVID-19 Risk Management Audit. Based on the same principles as our security accreditation, it enables you to show you have taken the right steps to keep your guests as safe as possible.
Our ‘health security’ process independently verified by SFJ Awards, a UK Government approved standards and qualifications awarding body, has enabled us to assess the health and security arrangements required of hotels participating in Government-mandated QUARANTINE schemes.
Our team is a global network of former police, security, military and counter terrorism experts with hundreds of years collective expertise in creating and maintaining secure environments.
GSA is the first independent global standard for hotel security. It delivers reassurance and peace of mind for travellers, corporates with travelling employees and travel management companies.
The GSA standard has been created in partnership with several international bodies and is constantly evolving. It delivers the clearest independent global standard hotel security
“The approach that has been taken and the level of detail described in GSA’s good practice document, is excellent.”
“We cannot emphasise enough how important the benchmark and independent accreditation that GSA is setting. The hospitality industry is desperately in need of a set of standards that work across all regions and deals with health, safety and security directly for our travellers and suppliers staff.”
"Our corporate clients are increasingly concerned about security issues and this award will help me to reassure those clients, and other guests that we have high security standards which have been verified independently."
“The security of our guests and staff is of the upmost importance and our number one priority in everything that we do at the Strand Palace. We are absolutely delighted and very proud to have achieved this accreditation from such a well-regarded organisation as Global Secure Accreditation Ltd, which demonstrates our commitment to maintaining these high levels of hotel security.”
"I have no doubt that the accreditation will play a part in retaining important guests and securing new visitors.”
"We want to ensure guests have all the information they need to travel safely and securely.”
The hotel industry is one of the fastest growing business sectors in the world, worth more than $550 billion annually according to industry analysts.
