SAFE Certified is a tool utilized by various types of businesses, facilities and establishments aimed at keeping employees, guests, patrons and the public at large as safe as possible as they frequent public locations. The membership-based solution guides its member entities through the provision of detailed, current relevant information for safely operating. SAFE Certification fosters compliance with local, state and federal mandates, such as those created by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, The U.S. Department of Labor and The United States Environmental Protection Agency.
SAFE Certification uses these official mandates to develop all its stringent protocols for entities to appropriately adhere to the latest requirements and continually revises these, based on updates from these agencies. The tool supplies members current relevant information for safely operating, including guidance surrounding sanitation guidelines, Personal Protective Equipment, physical and social distancing, disinfecting processes and best practices as well as training on handling certain infectious disease situations and more. Checklists are customized for specific businesses and/or locations.
The process to become SAFE Certified is easy and affordable. Businesses simply register and an initial audit is conducted. Audits are then randomly conducted to ensure adherence to today’s new non-negotiable standards. Planned quarterly inspections are conducted to assure the entity continues to meet current government guidelines and standards. Inspections are performed through videoconferencing with a member of the staff and are performed by SAFE-Certified trained personnel. Accountability Representatives within the SAFE Certified membership organization must be assigned, with their contact information publicly displayed beside the SAFE-Certified badge.
SAFE Certification initially unveiled its specialty services to retail, restaurants, churches and offices as well as other businesses throughout the country. Subsequently, SAFE Certified will become available for nearly all business types, domestically and internationally. For entities interested in enrolling with Safe Certification, click here.
"SAFE Certification’s mission is to make the environment safer, but perhaps more immediately and most importantly, our primary goal is helping slow the spread of COVID-19. While there is no guarantee that a space is free of any pathogen, we created SAFE Certification to help businesses promote healthy and safe conditions for customers, employees and other visitors. As a result, SAFE Certification serves as proof these establishments are doing their part to improve overall public health in light of the pandemic," explained Mark Walton, founder and chief executive officer at SAFE Certification.
"As people return to work and resume activities of daily life and some sense of normalcy in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic, SAFE Certified status assures public confidence. This will make a dramatic difference to various entities, knowing they are doing everything they can to offer patrons safe surroundings. Patrons can take comfort in knowing there is an extra layer of protection at the establishments they are frequenting," Walton concluded.
In addition to businesses and establishments earning SAFE Certified status, consumers also can partake in the SAFE Certified process, further validating the power of the process and holding businesses, facilities and establishments accountable. Business patrons are afforded the ability to take photos and upload them directly to a site dedicated to the specific entity’s location which they are visiting. Patrons can provide comments about their experiences at this SAFE Certified location. Consumer involvement helps promote personal comfort levels and ensures their health and safety as well as that of others.
