InterContinental Bangkok awarded SHA certification
InterContinental Bangkok has been awarded SHA Safety and Health Administration certification by the Tourism Authority of Thailand following introduction of Covid-19 safety measures
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has awarded InterContinental Bangkok the prestigious Amazing Thailand Safety and Health Administration (SHA) certificate, recognising the hotel’s strict guidelines and policies in relation to hygiene, health and cleanliness for the entire premises, equipment and restrooms, along with the operational staff, as part of the nationwide effort to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
TAT has worked in collaboration with public and private sector partners to introduce the SHA certification with the aim of elevating the country’s tourism industry standards and developing confidence among international and domestic tourists now that travel has resumed.
The partners involved in developing the certification have included the Ministry of Public Health, Ministry of Tourism and Sports, Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau, Board of Trade of Thailand, Federation of Thai Spa and Wellness Association, Thai Retailers Association, Thai Hotels Association, Association of Domestic Travel, Thai Amusement and Leisure Park Association, Thai Restaurant Association, Thai Spa Association, Thai Boats Association, and Event Management Association.
TAT is responsible for controlling the issuance of the logo. The number of SHA logos has been specified to operators in order to be recorded as a database of names receiving certification. TAT is able to revoke the SHA logo in the event that an operator is unable to maintain the standards to comply with the SHA certification requirements.
The SHA certification for InterContinental Bangkok is in addition to the IHG Clean Promise that complies fully with World Health Organisation directives and is approved by Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health.
